Built for those who enjoy the mouth watering sensation of juicy, tropical hops paired with a bit of dank and resinous piney hops, Tongue Crusher is here for you!
There’s a strong fruit aroma full of pineapple, lemon, orange and citrus while the light color and crisp body lend just enough bready malt character to support the hop dominance in this beer. Even though it clocks in at 9% ABV, it’s not boozy or enamel ripping. Dare we say “Easy Drinker”? Yup, we dare.
To really amp up the hop-forwardness in this beer, we used copious amounts of Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Sorachi Ace late in the boil and during whirlpool. We then did two separate dryhop additions with combinations of Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and Sorachi Ace to really make them shine.
Cheers and enjoy!
