Other Half Double Dry Hopped All Together

Brewery: Other Half Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 6.5%
Style: New England / Hazy IPA
Other Notes: Togetha 4eva. Double Dry Hopped India Pale Ale. Hops – Cascade, Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe

Brewer Description: (from website) A world wide collaboration hosted by Other Half, Stout Collective and Craftpeak to support the enormous amount of hospitality workers laid off during this difficult time. We are donating 100% of our proceeds to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation. We brewed this recipe with 2-row, oats and carapils and then hopped it with a beautiful blend of our hand selected Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Cascade. This second batch gets the addition of an additional dry hop with the same hops for those of you that think there are never enough hops in beer. We intentionally kept the recipe simple so that every brewer that wants to do it can do it. Keep an eye out for versions from over 700 breweries worldwide all working to help others in need.
