Our next IPA features new experimental hop HBC438 from YCH. We used a simple Golden Promise malt bill allied to some oats for a clean body and smooth mouthfeel. A small amount of Cascade was used in bittering, with Citra, Simcoe and HBC 438 in whirlpool and Citra, Simcoe HBC 438, and Mosaic in dry hop. An expressive aroma featuring Pineapple, Mango, and Coconut is backed up with a punchy tropical flavour full of stone fruit and lime. The finish is slightly minty/spicy with an herbal bitterness. Unusual, intriguing, fruity and weirdly moreish we’ll leave anymore interpretations of this crazy hop up to you.
