Introducing our second collaboration beer with London Brewing, the Runner's High Dry Hopped Pale Ale! For this recipe, we were looking for something that showed of the aromas and flavours of the BackRoads hops, while still being approachable. I.e. not to bitter, easy on the palate, and more sessionable than a full strength IPA. On the malt side, after a base of local organic newdale, we added a healthy addition of oats and wheat to round out the mouthfeel. A small early bittering charge of chinook to balance that malt sweetness, followed by a heavy whirlpool addition of cascade and chinook. Double dry hopped, leaning more cascade than chinook. It's a smooth hazy hoppy pale ale, coming in at 5.5%. Nice citrus, grapefruit aromas with a touch of blackcurrant. "Aaron Lawrence, President, London Brewing Co-operative"
