Hey Hey Hey! Dry Hopped Mixed Culture Foeder IPA!
“Eternal Mourning: Idaho 7” marks the beginning of a long period of experimentation that’s been happening behind the scenes here at DSSOLVR. One of the first beers we brewed was a base IPA composed of 100% Riverbend Malt 2-Row, Oats, and Wheat and hopped extremely aggressively with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Crystal. We then knocked that beer out into a fresh Cylindroconical Foeder (hell yeah!) from Foeder Crafters, and fermented it with our proprietary House Mixed Culture, where it resided untouched for damn near a year. This will be used in a Solera method as our “Base Funky IPA”, so we pulled off a small portion and dry-hopped the bejeezus out of it with Idaho 7 before packaging and allowing it to naturally condition with Walker Honey Farms Wildflower Honey and a dash of our Mixed Culture. Almost 4 months later, here we are! Hey Hey Hey!
The Eternal Mourning base will get a different dry hopping each time, as we only pull off small portions into our Puncheons for any sort of secondary treatment. First up, is Idaho 7, and damn are we pleased with this.
Just a straight punch in the face with a fist full of funk, followed up with Pineapple rind in the sunshine, Ruby Red Grapefruits for breakfast, extra ripe and plump Plums, running through a field of Wheat with a fresh glass of Papaya juice, a touch of fresh Pine sap, and just the faintest balancing wisp of acidity.
