First Fridays Can Release! Left Brain & Right Brain
October 6, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm
FIRST FRIDAYS continues with the following releases at Manor Hill Brewing…
In the American Craft Brewing scene, there are two very different regional mindsets as it relates to brewing an IPA. We thought it would be fun to explore both of those worlds in this next First Friday can release.
LEFT BRAIN: 8% ABV, West Coast-Style DIPA
For this representation of a West Coast-Style IPA we used a relatively simple malt bill comprised of Pale, Pils and Munich malts. The hop bill features aggressive additions of prized American hops, Chinook, Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade and Palisade. The resulting beer displays aromatics full of pine, grapefruit and spice followed by an assertive hop bitterness in the flavor profile.
RIGHT BRAIN: 8% ABV, New England-Style DIPA
For our version of a New England-Style IPA we began with a malt bill consisting of 45% flaked malts for a soft and inviting mouthfeel. Citra, Galaxy, Denali and some Experimental hops known for their intense tropical flavor were used to provide the fruit forward profile that is highly coveted in this style. The result is an incredibly hazy orange body crowned by a fluffy white head. Melon, Papaya and Pineapple hop notes dominate both the aroma and flavor profile accompanied by a very low bitterness level.
Reservations to the Taproom are not required for to-go only sales, but you should make one if you plan to hang out and/or sample.
Stay tuned to all our social media channels to see what we have in store for the next First Friday and other special events!
