Alive She Cried
India Pale AleHomebrew Series
Drawing its name from one of Jim Morrison's lyrics, "Alive She Cried" is an intensely dry-hopped IPA that pushes on tropical freshness. With just a smidge of bitterness in the back taste and plenty of exotic fruit aromas all-round, it pairs great with good tunes on a hot summer day, for the music is your special friend!View on Untappd

Having focused on dark ales for the most part of this brewing project, I've come to realise that it's been almost a whole year since I actually brewed a light colored beer that wasn't a collaboration brew or third party project, so with the summer heat weave hitting Europe hard in 2019, it was high time for me to craft myself a new IPA recipe. Much like my "Gagged & Bound" West Coast IPA, this one was also all about getting to know my hops and seeing what they are capable of. Having already stocked up on a quite a bit of Hallertau Blanc as well as another new strain of Hallertau hops from Hopsteiner, it was the perfect combo for driving this hoppy beer forward. With Pilsner and Golden Promise for a malt base, and Carapils for enhanced mouthfeel and head retention, this beeer was heavily hopped with late additions in the whirlpool as well as intensely dry hopped at over 4 g/l during the secondary fermentation.
This is a homebrewed beer that is not available for sale or distribution of any kind. It was brewed at home in small quantities to be shared only with family and friends simply out of passion for the craft and as a tribute to the music that inspired it.
