Crankenstein….an unorthodox brewing experiment selecting the best elements of West Coast and NEIPAs, resulting in a seamlessly stitched together evolution of the style. Clean, dry and bright, with a balancing bitterness, the heart of this creature is pure west coast. Crankenstein’s soul, however, is thoroughly New England with an exceptional mouthfeel and lush hop aromas. Each numbered release in this series features a distinctive blend of exciting hops that will awaken the senses. Some might say it’s an atrocity. We think it’s the future!
For Crankenstein 003 we feature the same smooth and crisp malt base as the previous two monster baby’s. Pilsner malt sets the stage by contributing a very clean and crisp malt foundation. This is rounded out by a rich and smooth malt body from our heavy use of Simpsons Golden Promise malt. Flying on top of these are a unique blend of hops that contribute incredible “Holy Tropical Fruit Salad” hop aromas and flavors. Australian Vic Secret Hops lend clean and bright tropical fruit character highlighted by passionfruit and pineapple juiciness, while New Zealand Rakau hops bring about lovely and pungent whiffs of ripe fruit, particularly peach, along with subtle tropical flowers hints.
