Our latest brewery intern, Johan Hesselberg, created a A Hazy Pale Ale with Simcoe, Idaho 7 and Columbus hops.
We always create the opportunity for our brewery interns to design and brew their own recipe, as part of their brewery education with us. Through our side project, which we call Beerbliotek Experimental Brews, they have the freedom to experiment, gain valuable experience, confidence and knowledge on how to work with beer, before they head out into the world.
Simcoe brings underlying tones of pine and citrus together with tropical fruits from Idaho 7. The result is an easy-drinking 5,2% Hazy Pale Ale, with overripe tropical fruits, candied peaches, pine and lemon flavours. Columbus hops accentuate a nice, dank bitterness to end with, for balance.
Experimental Brew: Hazy Pale Ale
From the creator: “Axel encouraged me to first examine a selection of hops. He taught me how to work with ingredient combinations, to be able to create a successful recipe. I learnt that it’s more important to select hops that lift each other up, that work well together, than simply picking your preferred ones. I also took inspiration from two of my favourite Beerbliotek beers for the malt profile: Hip Hops & Silly Season. I wanted to keep the beer easy-drinking, with a lower ABV, but for it to still be fun and have lots of flavour.”
