Our first batch of our newest R&D IPA, meant for experimenting and trying new processes, hopping techniques, hop combinations, and so much more!
This batch was an experiment using some hop varietals we haven’t used much, in copious amounts in the whirlpool, utilizing some newly researched hop theories. We then dry hopped it heavily with some known variables (Nelson and Vic Secret, similar to “I Actually Exist”) to see what sort of push that whirlpool technique gave the beer.
XP1 gives us a bit more of a depth of hop character, with a little bit of bitterness and notes of candied lime, white grape, citrus, lemon zest, and a little grassiness. 6.0% abv.
