Brew Review: Green Power Double Dry Hopped Imperial IPA 2019

Green Power Double Dry Hopped Imperial IPA 2019

 

 

 

It is not a secret that Juicy or Hazy IPA’s are all the craze this days but not all are created equal. What is the magic behind them?

After ale yeasts are done chomping on the sugars in beer, they die and fall out of suspension.

This process is called flocculation, and it refers to the spent/dead/no-longer-with-us yeast settling to the bottom of the fermentation tank.

When brewers want to achieve a clear beer, they remove this yeast, which helps clarify the beer.

If a brewer wanted to achieve some haze, they might use a less flocculant yeast strain.

This means the yeast don’t fall out of suspension as quickly.

Some yeast strains that brewers favor for Juicy/Hazy IPAs are less flocculant and produce not only haze but also fruity flavors called esters, adding to the “juicy” flavor and aroma often associated with these IPA’s.

 

Appearance:

  • Blurry and Creamy
  • Mango fruit juice with pulp

 

Aroma:

  • Citrus, pineapple, vanilla. It is a unique combination of floral and fruity notes.

 

Flavor Profile:

  • Citrus/Lemon
  • Mango
  • Tropical fruits
  • Vanilla
  • Earthy pine
  • Grassy/Herbal hoppy notes

 

Overall:

The prominent flavors of the combination of hops lead the way and your journey of fruits with some vanilla on the backbone.

With a lingering bitterness that makes a perfect balance in your palate for Other Half Green Power DDH.
