This IPA was designed to be flavourful and delicate, with lots of fruit-forward, floral aromatics — but it's also noteworthy for being the first Bellwoods' beer to be carbonated with recaptured CO2. It represents a huge step towards closing the loop on our carbon usage!
For context, carbon dioxide is normally released into the atmosphere during fermentation (because hungry yeast produces CO2 and alcohol), and then purchased in tanks from industrial suppliers (because finished beer needs bubbles) come packaging time. But in this new scenario, and moving forward, Bellwoods will have recycled CO2 to access, made possible by the industry-altering system from Earthly Labs.

Oh, and P.S. — You can expect luscious notes of passionfruit, pineapple, jasmine and Juicy Fruit gum. Plus the tastiest carbonation in all the land.
