秋の気まぐれ 2020 (Aki no Kimagure 2020)
Each year, the Kimagure series puts one of beer’s most loved ingredients front and center: hops. While the recipes change with each season and between each year, this is usually our way to use what hops we have on hand to fit the mood or season we are brewing in. One season that tends to have a second ingredient share the spotlight each year though is Autumn when specialty malts also take the stage.
Something about the change from long hot summer days to crisp fall evenings makes us crave the rich flavors of crystal malts. Their beautiful red hues also align with the visual changes happening here in Kyoto making it a perfect match for the season. This year is no different, and Aki no Kimagure 2020 is a full out Red IPA balancing both rich malt flavor and sharp citrus aromas.
Combining both medium crystal malts as well as a rye crystal malt creates a deep and inviting dark fruit and caramel like flavor and aroma. They also provide a firm body that, along with a 6.5% ABV, further enhances the rich character of this beer. Combining hop varieties of Columbus, Idaho 7, and Centennial creates a resinous yet citrus focused flavor and aroma that accentuates the fruity characteristics of the malts. We hope this year’s version is a perfect companion to all of your Autumn adventures!"
