Parachute 5.5% Ekuanot, HBC431 & Citra DDH Pale
by Pressure Drop·
Sometimes you have to go with the flow, and when the flow is delicious hoppy, hazy beer then it's not such a bad thing. For our first foray into New England territory our mission for Parachute was to create a soft stage for the hops to dance on. We focused on the idea of softness and worked on the water profile to achieve the mouthfeel we were after. Low bitterness was key to the plan, as was a grain bill with the inclusion of oats and wheat to build the texture of the beer.
The hop selection is Ekuanot, HBC431 and Citra, double dry-hopped at a rate of 16g/L. The beer is gold coloured and hazy, with a rich aroma of hops, low bitterness and a soft palate that allows the hops to fully express their fruity goodness.
