We wouldn’t leave you hanging this #DryJuly without a fresh new Hoppy Refresher mocktail recipe. This raspberry-lemon wonder whipped up by @boozykooties has two measly grams of carbs if you care about that sort of thing…We’re mostly just taking it as our sign to have one every single day this week. Not doing Dry July? A little birdy told us our #DayTimeIPA would be right at home in this recipe in place of the Hoppy Refresher.Read more
The Waldos' Special Ale
The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed by Lagunitas
This is the one. Made in honor of the origins of 420, a triple IPA, with the help of the Waldos themselves…
In 1971, the Waldos met one afternoon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur. They set out in a ’66 Impala armed with a “treasure map” on a journey to find a secret garden near Point Reyes. They met there at the same time every day and continued their quest. They never found the secret garden….But they keep lookin’. So we keep brewin’ this beer every year in time for 4/20. For all the treasure hunters everywhere.
For all the Treasure Hunters…
Triple IPA, huh? For perspective, an IPA already expresses bold hop characteristics. Double IPA (or Imperial IPA, depending on your, like, opinion, man) is an even bigger expression of that bitter, hop intensity; not to mention alcohol content. So, a 420-Inspired Triple IPA brewed with some of Yakima’s dankest Citra and Mosaic hops? Yeah. It’s, uh, heady.
Herbacious. Botanical. Dank. Resinous. Available in Hiiiiighly limited areas in April. Word.
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 conetent of a beer. Pretty neat, huh?
Using the most sulfurous hops around, it’s as close to smokin’ as you can get while drinking a beer
Balancing the dank, taking cue from our Highly-balanced IPA, we layer orange & grapefruit notes via hops, making it way too drinkable for the über-High ABV
Oddly specific, yes, but if you know anything about the wonderous ponderosa pine, you know it doesn’t smell like generic pine. Once you get up in on the tree, you’ll notice the sap smells like vanilla … mmm, vanilla pine.
