All of All of Us
Orthodoxy is usually limiting, wherever it pops up. IPA is no exception. Hazy IPAs must be straight juice, malt sweetness, no bitterness. West Coast IPAs must be hard-edged, super bitter, and piney. We need to free our minds, people! All of All of Us is one vision of the future for IPA. Hazed, yes, but more as a byproduct of hop-loading than as an intentional aesthetic. Juicy and tropical, absolutely, but blended productively with old-school hops chosen carefully to lend a balance of pine and citrus to the picture.
The immersive sensory experience we’re aiming for is drinking a tiki cocktail while sitting in a hot tub somewhere in the mountains, surrounded by an aromatic pine forest.
