“Eternal Mourning: Huell Melon” is the next release in our series of Dry Hopped Funky Foeder IPA. One of the first beers we brewed here was a base IPA composed of 100% Riverbend Malt 2-Row, Oats, and Wheat and hopped extremely aggressively with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Crystal. We then knocked that beer out into a fresh Cylindroconical Foeder (hell yeah!) from Foeder Crafters, and fermented it with our proprietary House Mixed Culture, where it resided untouched for damn near a year. This base has now all been acting as our “Base Funky IPA”, so we pulled off a small portion and dry-hopped the bejeezus out of it with Huell Melon before packaging and allowing it to naturally condition with Walker Honey Farms Wildflower Honey and a dash of our Mixed Culture.
The Eternal Mourning base gets a different dry hopping each time, as we only pull off small portions into our Puncheons for any sort of secondary treatment. First up was Idaho 7, and Huell Melon is the Dry Hop on this version.
Just a straight punch in the face with a fist full of funk, followed up with a dash of Cantaloupe sorbet, Melon balls on a nice picnic, some sweet and juicy Pineapple chunks, a field full of Hay with a touch of freshly-mown lawn, and just the faintest balancing wisp of acidity. Show Less
