Telepathy - 7.2% IPA - Magic Rock Brewing
The latest in our Mentalism series is Telepathy IPA, using a large proportion of oats & wheat to provide a smooth, pillowy body for an absurd quantity of Denali hops, boosted by Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe Cryo Hops™. In order to accentuate the blueberry and pineapple notes from the Denali, we fermented Telepathy with the fruit-forward estery London Ale III strain that we used in the recent Half Cut & Grower Owned releases.
This will be the last 500ml IPA for a little while, as we have a number of other styles we’d like to get into our small batch labelled cans, but we like making them and drinking them so much they’ll likely return at some point later in the year. Watch this space…
Telepathy, and a new batch of our Gluten-free Citra-hopped IPA Fantasma, will both be available for draught pours, growler fills and in 500ml tall-boys at Magic Rock Tap this Friday from 1pm. Both 500ml cans will be available for mail-order on our website on Wednesday 7th June at 3pm. Tasting notes for Telepathy below. As ever, let us know what you think!
Telepathy – 7.2% IPA
Our latest IPA is a development of our recent Demonali IPA recipe, showcasing the new hop varietal Denali. Golden Promise malt was used in addition to Golden Naked Oats, Wheat and Pin Head Oats to achieve a smoother body. We added lots more Denali hops giving the beer big Pineapple and Pine aromatics and added in Citra and Simcoe lupulin powder for more tropical fruit and pine flavours. The beer was fermented with London Ale III for that juicy aroma and long finish.
