Runes (citra & simcoe)

double dry-hopped ipa w/ citra & Simcoe Lupulin powder)

In a nutshell, Runes is an IPA series we created to explore the interplay of lupulin powder and regular hops in beer. For those purely concerned with flavour notes, skip on ahead, but for anyone interested in what the hell 'lupulin powder' is, let's take a second to get nerdy. This proprietary product is a concentrated form of hops, comprising all the essential acids and oils that you love, but none of the excess, space-consuming vegetal matter that brewers hate. Consider it a high-tech beer for nerds and non-nerds alike.

ABV: 6.7%

What it smells and tastes like:  Aromas of pine, cedar and orange peel. Citrus dominates on the palate -- tons of juicy naval orange, tangerine and clementine are underscored by a soft body and extremely low bitterness.
