Our brewers developed this recipe for more than a year; playing around with yeast strains and hop combinations in search of a smooth, juicy offering that pleases palates. With VT IPA they found the perfect balance of tropical fruit and citrus flavors through a heavy dry-hopping of Citra and Amarillo hops, which give distinct tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit character.
The juicy hop profile is complemented by the grist, which features a heavy hand of flaked oats and aromatic Munich malt to deliver a smooth mouthfeel and hazy appearance. What sets this beer apart - aside from the soft bitterness - is the introduction of a new yeast strain that provides the beer with more neutral notes and juicy esters that enhance the hops.
Enjoy it fresh, enjoy it often.
Our take on the hazy, hoppy style coming from the Green Mountains. VT IPA features late additions of Citra and Amarillo hops that deliver distinct notes of tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit.
Flaked oats provide a smooth mouthfeel and hazy body while aromatic Munich malts give a subtle touch of biscuit and cracker flavors to balance the juicy hop profile. VT IPA marks the first widespread release to utilize a new yeast strain with juicy esters that complement the hop bill.
