Jelly King (Pineapple, Tangerine & Grapefruit)

Dry Hopped Sour Ale w/ Fruit
5.6% ALC./VOL.

He is a ruler, an overlord, a top dog, a crowned head. In the richly varied domain of prokaryotic microorganisms, Jelly King reigns supreme.

Rather than choosing between sour or hoppy, we decided to create a beer that would be both at the same time. Showcasing the aromatic benefits of a generous dry hop (Citra, Amarillo, and Cascade), harnessing the pleasing acidity of lactic acid producing bacteria (we use a 5-strain house blend), and coming to a bottle near you without a pesky 2 year slumber in oak, Jelly King is the fermented embodiment of having your cake and eating it too.

We decided to celebrate the exodus of summer with one of our most drinkable Jelly King variants yet. We conditioned this batch of Jelly King on a huge amount of pineapple, tangerine & grapefruit purée and the result is pure sunshine.

What it smells like, what it tastes like, what it looks like: Aromas and flavours of juicy pineapple and sweet tangerine up front with dry, tangy and subtly bitter grapefruit on the finish. Light bodied and crushable, the citrus character is reminiscent of five alive.
