Dive in hop heads...new adventures in hop technology!!
For Leisure Center we've used multiple types of hop technologies with several hopping techniques to achieve very high dry hopping rates, huge aromas, and juicy flavors while minimizing grassy notes and vegetal flavors. Technically, this hopping rate would be 3x bigger than anything we've done yet! 30 grams per liter!! This beer uses the same water profile from Pillow Talk and even creamier malt bill with several different varieties of oats. Then cometh the hops! We started with heavy whirlpool additions of Ekuanot Incognito, Citra Incognito, and Citra Cryo and after the whirlpool, we performed a DIP hop which is essentially steeping the hops before pushing into the fermenter. This helps pull compounds that would be volatilized at higher temperatures, yet not quite extracted at dry hop temps, adding a huge aroma and flavor boost. Once in the fermenter we did a double dry hop with Citra Cryo and Ekuanot. Which added even more layers of hoppy goodness!

Sweet, but not too sweet, lots of stone fruits, very juicy. Slight grapefruit.
Low carb, really smooth and creamy, full bodied. Slight lingering bitterness.
