Stereo Hopic IPA Vol. 5
2 HOPS ALIGN for 4-D Flavor in a 3-D world.
AN EXPERIMENTAL SERIES FOCUSING ON TWO HOP VARIETELS AT A TIME
Taste what happens when the berrytastical Strata meets the peachy, cherry-y, stone-fruity orchard of Ekuanot.
The StereoHopic IPA Series channels our 25+ year hop love affair into a spotlight on two special varietals at a time–and the interestingness that occurs between.
When two hops come together, the combination can be better than the sum of its parts…expect a simply fruit-cocktailian experience, full of summer orchard flavor mixed up with berry explosion.
Beer math on ABV (Alcohol By Volume) is pretty straightforward… the Higher the ABV, the more alcohol in the beer. No rocket science necessary.
Generally speaking, a high IBU beer will have a more bitter taste than a lower IBU beer.
The OG measures solids in the wort before fermentation to consistently arrive at the same alcohol content of a beer. Pretty neat, huh?
The Strata hop got its name for having multiple layers of flavors and aromas, including juicy & ripe strawberries. Once you try it, you’ll know…
Yakima’s recent experimental release, Ekuanot, gives off big tropical fruit cocktailian notes, especially in the papaya department.
WTF is Grippy? It’s that big dank energy and resinous tongue-coating hop lupulinity that keeps you comin’ back for more.
Maximus is our Colossal take on a Double IPA. 9% ABV. Full of Simcoe and Cascade hops balanced against tons of rich malted barley—a bed of smooth malted wheat, biscuity Munich malt, and English Crystal. Maximus’ massive dry-hop bill entertains with spice, floral and berry notes … For the hop heads!
