Beer Description:
Great Lakes surfers work hard for
their thrills. They wake before dawn, listening to the
weather report like school kids hoping for a snow
day. If the waves are worthy, they ride. No matter
the cold, no matter the season, no matter the frozen
crystals gathering in their beards, or the wind-
whipping, white knuckle conditions they must face.
To these chill rust belt surf dudes, it’s all good. Yeah,
it sounds a little crazy, but we didn’t craft our Double
IPA for the faint of heart. With a flash of Mosaic hops
and a kiss of honey malt, it’s a rush in a bottle. Ride
our Chillwave. Then go out and find your own.
Style Origin:
Distinctively American, the Double
IPA or Imperial IPA is thought to have originated in
California. This fairly new style is a heartier, hoppier
version of the traditional IPA with a higher alcohol
content, creating a very strong and flavorful drinking
experience.
Flavor:
Hop-forward with a balanced blend of
Mosaic and Nugget hops
Ingredients:
MALT
Harrington 2-Row Base Malt:
Allows color and flavor
from other specialty malts to come through; makes
for very clean beer
Caramel 45:
Contributes to amber color; provides
complexity
Honey Malt:
Contributes sweetness
HOPS
Mosaic:
New U.S. hop; provides floral, tropical, fruity,
and earthy characteristics
Nugget:
U.S. bittering hop; provides floral, resiny
aroma and flavor
Cascade:
U.S. hop with citrus characteristics for
aroma
Pairs With:
Smoked beef brisket, grilled lamb,
sharp and rich cheeses, and sweet desserts
Shelf Life:
90 days
