We spent over a year prototyping R&D versions of Nu Skool. This final version is one special beer. It is an IPA with a slight malty sweetness, but overall balanced & brimming with tropical, fruity, spicy, piney & citrus character. To contrast our IPA, which most closely resembles a traditional English IPA in malt & hop bills, we wanted to brew an India Pale Ale in a new way. West Coast brewers have been brewing lighter, more "Americanized" yet still full of hop character & our brewers wanted to try their hand by brewing their take. HOP PROCESS: We used 3.5 lbs. of "new school" varieties of hops per barrel of beer. We load our hopback to the brim with Mosaic hops for a big tropical fruit character. A nice whirlpool dose of experimental hop #07270 gives the beer a flavorful, resinous character. We then dry hop this beer on two separate days with a large amount of Mosaic hops in our hop cannon & Simcoe + Equinox two days later.

    Pours clear bright yellow with a thick porcelain head that hangs around for a while and even pillows a bit. Shy aroma presents resiny hops and a mix of citrus and tropical fruit. Bolder flavor delivers all of the above, while tossing in a little hop bitterness and some zesty fresh malt. Mouthfeel features typical body and jazzy fizz. Old Skool, Nu Skool, it's all good.

    Part of their Overpack'd 15-pack from Publix in Kissimmee, Florida. Clean light-golden colour with great tiny-bubble carbonation, a white frothy head, decent stay and some foamy lace. Hoppy aromas with the citrus and tropical fruit notes. The taste is quite bitter with the grass bite. Citrus as well here, and the tropical hints are very light. A very dry mouthfeel. Pretty good if you like Mosaic and other newer hops.

    This has more of a west coast feel and tropical flavors than their traditional IPA. Got in the ST overstacked 15-pack mixpack. Only got to try one sample because brought to a card game wanted to try one of each. Probably good enough to get a 6-pack of. Seems like could use a little more hops...perhaps slightly macro quality, although pretty smooth and refreshing feel. Will have to at least sample another to be certain.
