Northern Monk - OFS 016. 8.7%
8.7% ABV West Coast Double IPA. 440ml can.
Inspired by the latest advances in hop delivery in the form of Incognito, we wanted to see how it would pair in an old school West Coast Double IPA.
The hops are lead heavily by herby and piney notes, and this results in a high yet smooth bitterness in this 8.7% delight. The Incognito allows us to pack 15kg worth of hops oils into the kettle - a dreamy combination of Mosaic, Ekuanot and Simcoe.
The folks at Northern Monk have launched a brand-new beer series, a series dedicated to the exploratory, small-batch nature of brewing at their original Old Flax Store brewery site where it all began in 2014.
The OFS Special series will push the boundaries of their brewing, allowing them to be completely experimental in approach.
