WeldWerk DDH 3.8 Miles, Hazy Double IPA (4 x 16 oz.)
Hazy Double IPA / Colorado / 8.4%
3.8 Miles opens with bright notes of ripe mango, fresh lemon zest, juicy pineapple, and candied apricot, followed by a subtle resiny dankness to balance. For this follow up to 38 Blocks, Weldwerks kept the base beer mostly the same, but started with a brand new hop bill consisting of nearly 8 pounds of Mosaic, El Dorado and Lemondrop hops per barrel. The slightly higher attenuation allows the soft, creamy mouthfeel to hold up to the incredibly bold hop character without finishing too sweet. Despite the assertive hop character, 3.8 Miles maintains excellent drinkability as a result of the lower bitterness achieved from adding all the hops in the whirlpool and dry hop.
