Fermentables: 2-Row, Honey Malt, CaraMunich
Hops: Columbus, Denali, El Dorado
At 7.7% ABV, Side Scroller pushes the limits of a single-strength IPA. It’s moderately bitter with intense hops flavors and aromas. We used a small dose of Columbus for kettle bittering, but the spotlighted hops are two varieties that we hadn’t used before. Both are very fruity, with El Dorado contributing pear, watermelon, and stone fruit. And the Denali hops stand out with a super juicy pineapple flavor and resinous pine.
