春の気まぐれ 2020 (Haru no Kimagure 2020)
This year’s Haru no Kimagure is a bit of an experiment in teaching an old dog new tricks&mdashspecifically using the quintessential C hop trio of Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook in a classic pale ale but doing so with techniques that have evolved from brewing more modern NEIPAs. Instead of relying on intensely fruity varieties like Citra, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, and Galaxy, we decided to see how the classics would take to the new trick of biotransformation.
We are happy to announce that the result has created an even more intriguing hop aroma and flavor while retaining all the drinkability of the classic pale ale from which it drew inspiration. The grapefruit, orange, and pine notes are still at the forefront but have been intensified with a slightly more floral character. This works perfectly with the malty backbone from Simpsons Golden Promise blended with a touch of Munich and Crystal&mdashthe quintessential pale ale recipe! We think you will agree that this year’s Haru no Kimagure takes drinkability of this enduring style to a new level!
