ddhForcefield

DDH Forcefield
Style: Single IPA brewed with cryo hops
ABV: 6.4%
Bitterness: medium

Our recipe for Forcefield has changed a lot from batch to batch. This year’s is similar to last year’s — a single IPA focused around Azacca and Columbus. But this time we used cryo hops, for a megadose of lupulin oils! The result is an intensely hoppy and clean beer with unique notes of fresh chlorophyll, strawberry, sherbet, and big hop resin. Very “green.” Drinkability through the roof.

blueberrypopBlueberry Pop!
STYLE: Dessert Berliner weisse brewed with blueberries, vanilla, and milk sugar and conditioned on oak
ABV: 4.8%
ACIDITY: medium-high
COLOR: fluffy pink

Blueberry Pop! is the newest in our series of creamsicle-inspired dessert Berliners. This time, we’ve paired the creamy sweetness of vanilla and milk sugar with blueberries. Refreshing and balanced as always.

DDHTesseract

DDH Tesseract
Style: DIPA brewed with cryo hops and conventional pellet hops
ABV: 8%
Bitterness: Medium
Color: Hazy Gold

We punched up our favorite DIPA with an extra dose of mosaic cryo hops. More lupulin oil and less vegetative matter delivers an even fruitier and smoother hop experience.

supershine

Super Shine
Style: Dry-Hopped Gose Conditioned on Oak
ABV: 4.7%
Acidity: Medium
Color: Hazy Yellow

Super Shine is summer. Mosaic and Azacca hops, subtle salinity and oak character, and refreshing lemonade tartness. This is a crusher for sure.

Half Tone
Style: IPA
ABV: 6.4%
Bitterness: Medium

Half Tone is a relatively crisp riff on NE-style IPA with notes of strawberry and passionfruit. Simcoe and Azacca take the starring roles here.

cloudbusting4

Cloudbusting is our series of soft, delicate imperial IPA’s brewed with New Zealand hops. We rotate different NZ hops into each batch. Cloudbusting #4 turned out beautifully; we taste honeydew melon, clementines, honeysuckle, and that telltale “purple tropical” note that we often get from the New Zealand terroir. The beer has a soft mouthfeel, gorgeous yeast-free haze, some hop floaties, and some of the loveliest lacing and foam you’ve seen on a beer in your life. Cloudbusting #4 is brewed with Wai-iti, Waimea, and Motueka.

mangopop

Mango Pop!

Style: dessert berliner weisse brewed with mangos, vanilla, and milk sugar
ABV: 4.8%
Acidity: High

Mango Pop! is our favorite to date of the pop! series of tart, fruity, creamsicle-inspired dessert berliner weisses. It pours an opaque yellow with a fruited acidity that is balanced deftly by a delicate ice cream sweetness from the milk sugar and vanilla. The beer never becomes cloying and each sip demands another.

magnetictape

Magnetic Tape
Style: IPA
ABV: 6.4%
Color: Light Gold
Bitterness: Medium

Magnetic Tape is the cousin of the beloved Magnetic Compass. Both are oat single IPA’s pairing Mosaic with an interesting hop from New Zealand. Where Compass uses Rakau hops, Tape uses Motueka. This beer is all about big, fresh, radiant tropical fruit character from these two matchless hop varietals. There are no rough edges, just full and round aromas of melon, mango, and citrus. High drinkability quotient.
