Notes of fresh orange, yellow grapefruit, and juicy sweet mango trek from the first sniff to the last sip.
Pulp Free is the second in our series of conceptual IPAs, exploring and experimenting on specific aspects of this freight train of a beer style. This time around we visit the trend in the Northeast of juicy yet turbid IPAs, and we attempt to replicate this over the top juicy profile and aroma, all while leaving out as much yeast as possible to avoid the short shelf life and off flavor caused by leaving excessive yeast in beer. High starch and protein grains are used in more than one step in the brewing process to guarantee not just body, but that trademark haze we have come to expect from the Northeast. We went for a far more aromatic yeast ester profile than normal, contributing complimentary scents of over-ripe peaches falling from the tree. Low bitterness and an over-the-top dry hopping of Citra and Mosaic hops keep this beer in line with our typical Fieldwork flavor profile. The hops meld together to create an aggressive aroma that smells like a drive through a citrus orchard in peak of season. Pulp Free IPA delivers just what we want, pure juicy hop deliciousness without any of that pesky pulp.
