Hops: Citra | Chinook | Waimea
Style: West Coast IPA
With the weather kicking it up a notch in the last few weeks we needed a sub 7%, crisp, dry & bitter WCIPA to break up the lager. Forest Dweller fits the bill nicely, using one of our go-to West Coast hops, Chinook, and a new world West Coast favourite, @freestylehops Waimea.
In true Bracket fashion we couldn't release a beer without running a little 'test', it'd be a waste to release a beer without learning something, right? So this time we decided to trial a technique new to us, dip hopping, with an ingredient we had only used once before, @yakimachief new hot side Citra extract, YCH702.
We're pretty stoked with the results. Forest Dweller has a solid backbone of orange, lemon, lime & red berries from the YCH702 dip hop, backed up by strong pine, grapefruit & herbal characters from the Chinook and Waimea 👌
