Meet your new favorite beer to sip while spinning some tunes – Playlist 05:02 IPA! The Playlist series has been such a “hit” with you guys (excuse the pun) since we started it last year that we’ve decided to offer it in cans for the very first time AND dedicate our entire ‘so long summer’ week of events to the ultimate mix of good times with a kickoff can release party!
We think Playlist 05:02 IPA is the best one yet – a slightly hazy, easy drinking, lighter-bodied IPA with plenty of bright lemony notes, and only just a mild bitterness. We are calling it a ‘proto’ New England IPA – i.e., a throwback to when New England IPAs were slightly hazy, full of aromatic citrus notes, and medium-bodied (not heavy or yeasty). Mosiac, Citra, Simcoe and Crosby Farms experimental No 1 hops contribute flavors and aromas of stone fruit, lemon pith, and pine.
So join us for a can release party on Sunday, 8/25 and bring your own favorite playlist over to the brewery – maybe we’ll play it over our speakers, or you can add it to our pool of awesome playlists and even do a music swap with those who want to share some good grooves!
New to Playlist? Read on for the philosophy and continuing evolution of this series!
Last year we launched a new beer series with the concept that each beer in the series would feature a variation on a theme – using the same base India Pale Ale recipe (which includes oats, 2-Row, and Pilsen malt – all from Valley Malt, plus honey malt) then, just like when making good music, switching things up to keep it fresh every time we brew. One batch varies the hops, and the next batch changes up the yeast. And the catalog keeps growing – this is our 6th Playlist release to date. Enjoy!
