Our collaboration with Poland’s Funky Fluid is a mash of two styles: Sour, meet IPA. IPA, meet Sour!
We started with a classic New England base, Extra Pale, Wheat, Dextrin and Rolled Oats make for a soft and smooth body with a touch of sweetness to coincide with the acidity. Rather than kettle souring, we simply added lemon juice and citric acid, bit by bit. Balance at play. The majority of the dry hopping was done on the cold side. Nelson Sauvin is the hop showing its character most, super clean, green grape and gooseberry flavour is upfront, with Vic Secret and Hallertau Blanc on the exchange bringing tart passionfruit and grassy notes and Bru-1 providing underripe, crunchy pineapple and floral notes.
Zingy hop harmony, achieved!
