Style: New England IPA
IBU: 0 (technically.) IBU is an abbreviation for the International Bitterness Units scale, a gauge of beer’s bitterness. What IBUs measure are the parts per million of isohumulone found in a beer. Isohumulone is the acid found in hops that gives beer its bitter bite. Hop oils isomerize at 180°. Since all hops in this beer were added after the wort was cooler than 180 Fahrenheit, isomerization did not occur. Therefore this beer technically is ZERO IBU. However, when drinking this delicious beverage there is detectable balancing bitterness in the flavor.

About this beer: This beer was double dry hopped throughout fermentation. Double dry hopped is exactly as it sounds. We added 38 pounds of hops the day fermentation began and then 22 more pounds just before the batch reached terminal gravity. There are many flavors from start to finish in this well balanced ale. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
