When you’ve got a big, juicy, hoppy IPA in the tanks, sometimes it doesn’t need a flashy name. Sometimes it needs a name of a timeless, androgynous British songwriter. Sometimes it’s just “One” spelled backwards.
We decided to brew a nice, gassed-up IPA for the wintertime, and we wanted to give it some hop character to go along with the subtle burn from the alcohol and the sweetness of its malty body. We did lots of whirlpool additions and dry-hopping on this one, comprised of a bouquet of Simcoe, El Dorado, Mosaic and Citra hops. It’s got tropical notes, some citrus in there, and a delicious piney underbelly. Sitting at 7.9% ABV, this beer is a great beer to warm you up during the chills of winter, with enough on the nose to remind you of the summertime.
