mellifluous life

ABV  8.5%   |   IBU  ??   |   SRM  3.5

Mellifluous - flowing like honey, sweet and smooth. We used 120 lbs. of locally produced raw wildflower honey which adds fermentable sugars to boost ABV and dry out the beer. The light malt base consisting of Pilsner malt, wheat, and oats keeps the beer easy drinking and allows any residual honey flavor to come through and play with the hops. Brewed with 3lbs./bbl of “Cryo Hops”, which are double the strength of normal hops, all added in the whirlpool and two dry hop additions. The blend of Simcoe, Mosaic, Loral, and Ekuanot hops gives the beer a complex hop character ranging from floral, piney, and resiny to citrus and tropical fruit.  Raise a glass and live the Mellifluous Life!
