Hazy Double IPA | 473ml | ABV 8.0%
Juice experiments are well underway here to explore some of the new toys we have at our new South Street facility. We had two leading theories on how to best use one of our new toys, both rooted in solid science, preliminary results both looked good… but different. So we thought… lets try both!
We brought back the South Street version of the familiar companion set Experimentum and Imperium (Latin for Experiment and Control). Both feature our DIPA sized 2-Row Fractal fermentation, fractal grain bill, and a hop bill of Citra, Mosaic, and Sabra. These beers are parallel in recipe but not process. The difference focuses on two distinct uses of an exclusive piece South Street equipment and Experimentum utilizes our coveted Energy treatment process.
Both beers have a candy-like-tiki-cocktail aroma.
South Street Imperium has notes and flavors of assorted citrus, peach, and crushed Pez candy with dank and slightly resinous finish and punchy rollercoaster of EQ Juice. With the same ingredients but two different processes, a showdown is underway. Which one do you prefer?
Note: Pete likes both these beers so much he was 30 min late in getting this text ready and has a nice start to the weekend.
