We love hops as much as the next guy so we were intrigued when we heard about a new style of IPA being brewed in the northeast. These beers are typically brewed with little to no bittering hops, instead using heavy whirlpool and dry hop additions to create a beer with restrained hop bitterness and huge hop flavor and aroma. The addition of high protein grains like oats and wheat leaves the finished beer with a thick haze that helps keep the hop compounds in suspension. For our first attempt at the style we used a blend of Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, and Citra hops at a rate of 3.5 lbs/bbl which gives the beer a juicy hop character full of citrus and tropical fruit.
