What happens when you take one of your beloved (and hoppiest) beers and double-dry-hop it with CITRA? Well, you get overly joyous is what you get. We love hops so we decided to take one of our favorite IPAs and double up on the dry hop to create an IPA with an intense hop aroma. We dry hop 300 at a rate of 1.65#/BBL and then recirculate the beer to ensure we extract as many of the desired aromatic compounds as possible. For the DDH 300 we did that process twice for a total dry hop rate of 3.3#/BBL and re-circulated it twice.
Originally brewed as a one-off in celebration of the 300th batch at our original downtown Minneapolis brewery, this West Coast IPA was so well received we had to make it available year-round. It's built on a base of Pilsner malt and heavily hopped with Mosaic, one of our favorite -- and unfortunately nearly impossible to procure -- hop varieties.
