DESCRIPTION

This single malt, single hop or "s.m.a.s.h." beer is designed to showcase one of the newest, hottest hops to come screaming out of the northwest--Strata. Described as Tropical meets Cannabis, this hop brings a massive dose of juicy, fruity, citrusy goodness with a backbone of that resinous "dankness" that hop heads crave.

STYLE NOTES

AMERICAN IPA

The most popular American craft beer style. They range in ease of drinking (session) from easy to quite huge knock-you-out-of-your-chair flavor and alcohol. Hop flavor is medium to very high and should reflect an American or New World hop character, such as citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness. Malt flavor should be low to medium-low and is generally clean and grainy-malty although some light caramel or toasty flavors are acceptable. Low yeast-derived fruitiness is acceptable but not required. Dry to medium-dry finish; residual sweetness should be low to none. The bitterness and hop flavor may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. A very light, clean alcohol flavor may be noted in stronger versions. Maybe slightly sulfury, but most examples do not exhibit this character.
