CLOUDBURST COLLAB: LIL’ IPA (4.4%)

A collaboration Session IPA brewed with Cloudburst Brewing. We took Cloudburst’s hopping techniques and water treatments and incorporated them into our unique English-style brewing methods to create a smooth, hazy session IPA with big hop character from Cloudburst’s hand-selected Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops.


BONUS BREWER’S NOTES FROM MACHINE HOUSE BREWER JAKE DWORKIN:

“For the ‘lil’ IPA’, we brewed a medium-low strength beer using Cloudburst’s hand-selected lots of Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic. By using our methods of open fermentation and cask conditioning, plus cloudbursts extreme (for machine house standards) hopping techniques we created a tropical fruity, piney, mega hazy, soft and easy drinking IPA. I’m very happy with how this beer turned out because it has the things I like in an ipa, but doesn’t have that heaviness that many can sometimes have. It is “machine house like” in that way where you can pretty easily reach for another beer before you’ve even finished the pint in front of you.”
