A new world DIPA created in collaboration with our friends Modern Times Beer. Big, bold and juicy.
Release Date: February 2021
Pen Pals is a double IPA, brewed in collaboration with our Cali friends who you may have heard of – Modern Times. We’ve both made plenty of DIPAs before so we switched things up with this recipe to utilise both malt and yeast that neither brewery had used in this style before. When you combine that with a heavy dry-hop of the freshest Yakima Chiefs 2020 crop hops, the result speaks for itself. Extreme aromas of overripe mango, passionfruit and melon. Put this thing inside your mouth and you will be teleported to another planet where juicy, tropical and lush fruits are all that matters. Dry-hopped with Azacca Cryo, Citra, Motueka and Centennial, this is in another stratosphere of hop extremeness, but in the most enjoyable of ways. There is a sticky and drippy finish that straight up soaks your mouth with juicy hop notes until long after each sip. It is downright ludicrous how smooth this beer is for the ABV and we are so stoked to have been able to collaborate with Modern Times to produce it.
