Atlantean beer is inspired by mythological sea journeys which took curious voyagers beyond the ninth wave in search of the magical Otherworlds and the secret treasures they held. For this IPA, inspiration has travelled back from the other lands of New England across the cloudy foam of the Atlantic.
In this creamy and cloudy IPA copious amounts of American hops are used to add a big, juicy, fruity punch. Oats and lactose add a rich creaminess that subdues the bitterness, making this beer similar to a hopshake. Drink this beer as fresh as possible, when all the Alpha & Beta oils from the hops are the most powerful.
New England IPAs are beers that are purposely hazy or cloudy, which can give these brews a smooth, creamy mouthfeel with little to no hop bitterness at the end utilizing hops that impart a tropical, juicy sweetness rather than the classic bitter.
