CRUSH is our (other) ever changing concept, idea and journey towards the perfect IPA in a world where our idea of the perfect IPA is ever changing. Heard it before? Where FRESH is our IPA, CRUSH is our DIPA. CRUSH BETA is pineapple and cocktail fruits as a beer. More hops than ever before. For as long as we can remember.
We’ve changed two things from CRUSH ALPHA to CRUSH BETA. First, we slightly tweaked the dry hopping routine to get a cleaner hop taste and aroma. Second, and this is the big one, we added the new, experimental hop variety HBC 472 into the mix. Specific aroma descriptors for this hop include floral, wood, coconut and whiskey/bourbon. That makes this version of CRUSH something wildly different and exciting. Together with the other hops we get a tropical fruits syrup wood coconut very hoppy cocktail beer!
