NEW ENGLAND IPA
Dawn Patrol is a collaboration with our friends at The Whale in Greenville, South Carolina. It is a New England IPA brewed with pilsner malt and a mountain of flaked and malted oats. We then hopped this guy with five experimental hops that are new to all of us. It is soft, tropical, and slightly dank. Best enjoyed by those who are suave and debonair.
16-ounce cans and growlers.
Flaked oats, malted oats.
An intense, tropical fruit centric, hop aroma and flavor. Its dense, creamy, and cloud-like head hovers over an orange or golden yellow body with carbonation bubbles persistently rising to the top. Although many are amazed by the appearance, most people’s wow moment is when they put it to their nose and are greeted with a full-bodied wall of rich, tropical aromatics.
Around 2003, a small Vermont brewpub – Alchemist – set out to produce a beer with as much hop flavor and aroma as possible, without the constraints of traditional methods, such as the clarity that comes from filtering or the heavy bitterness often associated with traditional India Pale Ales. The result was a beer they named Heady Topper, which used a yeast strain that provided an almost juicy and fruity flavor profile.
The popularity of Heady Topper grew rapidly, inspiring other brewers in New England to replicate the brewing techniques. It wasn’t until 2017, though, that the Brewers Association, a non-profit organization of brewers with nearly 6,000 U.S. brewery members and 37,000 individual members, recognized this new style and officially established the category of New England IPA.
Today, New England IPAs are one of the most-popular beers being produced by brewers across the country. Beer drinkers seemingly can’t get enough of this very flavorful style of beer, including our own beer connoisseurs at Lincoln & South.
