“Triple dry hopped using Cascade, Mosaic Cryo and Sabro hops. Treat your taste buds to mango, lime, passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas, combined with a luscious mouthfeel, big hoppy flavours and low bitterness. CryoTherapy Hazy IPA is our new brew that will treat your taste buds to Cryogenic lupulin powder from whole hop flowers. It’s lively, juicy and pure deliciousness.”
Appearance: Super thick and turbid. Pastel orange centre working out to lighter orange edges. It builds a frothy two and a bit finger head that retains well and weaves a healthy lace down the glass.
Aroma: Displaying heady nectar-filled overtones. Loads of passionfruit, pine resin, tree sap, cannabis, tropical fruits like freshly cut mango, pineapple and lychee. We can detect that cryogenic lupulin powder with ease…it offers this potent mix of resin, herbs and what we can best describe as pure hop oil. Kind of a creamy/oaty and biscuity malt profile to it. We’re certainly picking up what they’re putting down!
Flavour: Big punchy hop flavours upfront led by the oily and resinous Cryo hops – sappy pine, cannabis and zesty citrus with the sweeter tropical fruits (passionfruit, mango, papaya, lychee) playing 2nd fiddle. Hints of rolled oats and semi sweet biscuit malts provide a smooth and savoury note which rounds it all out nicely. Pretty good length on it too.
Mouthfeel: creamy AF with a nice silky consistency. Medium body and finely carbed. The 6.1% ABV is perfectly positioned.
Overall: Another well polished offering from the SR crew here. The resinous Cryo hops really shine while the hazy side of things kept it incredibly smooth and creamy. We can definitely see ourselves returning for a few more.
