DESCRIPTION

This experimental IPA uses a Chinook lupulin hash grown and produced exclusively for Epidemic Ales by California Beer Farms. A simple, clean grain bill emphasizes the hop flavor, with Amarillo & Mosaic added for a modern West Coast twist. Pineapple and citrus swirls with resin and pine over a mellow bitterness and smooth body.

STYLE NOTES

AMERICAN IPA

The most popular American craft beer style. They range in ease of drinking (session) from easy to quite huge knock-you-out-of-your-chair flavor and alcohol. Hop flavor is medium to very high and should reflect an American or New World hop character, such as citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness. Malt flavor should be low to medium-low and is generally clean and grainy-malty although some light caramel or toasty flavors are acceptable. Low yeast-derived fruitiness is acceptable but not required. Dry to medium-dry finish; residual sweetness should be low to none. The bitterness and hop flavor may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. A very light, clean alcohol flavor may be noted in stronger versions. Maybe slightly sulfury, but most examples do not exhibit this character.
