Hop Syndrome

Before Epic Brewing had even set up shop they were promising that craft beer lovers would get some crazy - out of the box - extraordinary beers from their Exponential series.

And they've delivered. Their peach and cherry infused Belgian style triples come to mind. Now Epic is preparing to blow your minds with their next style bending beer.

The latest in the Exponential Series is a lager that has got caught up in the American hop craze. Hop Syndrome is a new lager that uses all Wyermann German Pilsner malt and true lager yeast. In the boil Calypso hops are used up front and at end of boil Crystal hops.

Calypso is a nice, Simcoe-esqe, high alpha hop and Crystal is an American derivation of Hallertuar (think Sierra Nevada). These hops provide a pleasant bitterness on the back of the tongue with some nice grass and citrus notes.

The beer will also be dry hopped with just a little Crystal and Calypso so that the nose shines more than in a standard lager.

The first production batch is being dry hopped this week and will be ready for bottles in about two more weeks. I'm really geeked to try this one.

Cheers!

A new style from epic and it is their first release? No thanks. I think I"ll wait a few batches until they really dial in the recipe and release something drinkable.

@Joe. Big Cottonwood is an amber ale that was released last year for the first time. It's quite good.
