The first in a new Patrons Project series, number 42, with 3D illustrator and animation director, Billelis.
A DDH IPA made with Great Notion brewing of Portland, Oregon, one of the United States’ most exciting breweries known for their hazy IPAs, and culinary-inspired sours and stouts.
This DDH IPA showcases hops from Portland suppliers Indie Hops and Crosby Hops, one of which may well be new to many, Luminosa. Luminosa is straight out of Indie Hops’ breeding programme and brings bags of flavour, with notes like peach-mango lemonade, candied orange, boysenberry, papaya and guava.
This is then backed up by another breeding programme success, Strata. This should give the beer that satisfying dank pine taste as well as hints of passionfruit.
We also used Idaho 7 in CGX form for the first time, Crosby’s new super-concentrated cryogenic lupulin pellets, leading to juicy tropical and stone fruit aromas, supported by sticky pine notes.
