Monogamy (HBC 522)

IPA Brewed Exclusively w/ HBC 522
6.4% ALC./VOL.

Monogamy is our ongoing, single hop series of pale ales -- a delicious and interesting (controlled) experiment designed to give us all a better understanding of what a hop can do when it flies solo. We keep our base recipe and brewing processes the same, but switch up the hop variable each time. A particularly troublesome beer for those who feel they....Must. Collect. Them. All.

Throughout the years we've brewed and rebrewed this recipe with over 20 different hops, and in 2017 we expanded the series to include double dry-hopped versions (for that nth degree of hop aromatics). This is a particularly unique Monogamy because we’ve brewed it with an experimental hop that was brought to us by Yakima Chief Hops

HBC 522: Intense aromas and flavours of mango, anise and dank pine lead into a smooth full-bodied mouthfeel and a spicy finish.
