PRESS RELEASE / May, 6, 2021 (Scituate, MA) – Untold Brewing sat down with the team at Brockton Beer Co. a couple times at our “Untold Loft” to hash out the recipe. The goal was to create a session NEIPA, but the catch was that it could not come across as simply a watered down single IPA. It had to maintain the explosive aromatics, soft (yet full) mouthfeel, and finish clean and juicy finish (no hop burn).
To achieve this, we started with a solid backbone. (2-Row, Golden Promise, Flaked Oats, Proximity Wheat, and Crisp Malted Oats). For unique stamp typically involves something considered “west coast”, in this case Chinook. Then heavily doused with Mosaic and Bru-1. Bru-1 is a new variety developed by John I. Haas and Brulotte Farms in the Yakima Valley. It is big and bold with a fruit-forward character that also offers clean bittering and pairs well with Chinook. Galaxy, Simcoe and has a lot of similar characteristics to Talus or Vic Secret.
The result is a 5.3% ABV juicy and hazy IPA that met our original goals. It pours straw to orange in hue, offers robust aromatics of tropical fruit, fresh squeezed citrus, and cut pineapple. Extremely low bitterness with just a hint of sweetness and a clean dry finish. The really intriguing part is the mouthfeel, which for a low 5% ABV beer, presents more like a mid-high 6%. It’s not sweet, not dry, and you quickly find yourself opening a second can. It turned out great and we can’t wait to share it.
$16.20/ 4Pack (taproom only release). It will also be available on draft starting Friday. We have a very limited number of kegs that we are going to offer to taprooms in the Brockton area, plus a few of our loyal accounts. We suspect this will disappear quickly.
