Continuing their Contrast series of hops expressed in the form of juicey New England IPA vs more bitter, drier West Coast IPAs.
The hop selection for this version is more typical of a NEIPA. A dry hopping of Cashmere, Citra and a touch of Bru-1 set the scene for a tropical fruit party.
The Cashmere and Bru-1 interplay to push out big pineapple, melon and coconut notes with the Citra providing a hefty dose of peach and a slight zingy citrus.
This is set over a grist of extra pale ale, malted wheat and a heavy dose of flaked oats contributing the smooth, silky mouthfeel with a medium, high sweetness.
