Putty NE DIPA – Verdant
Putty was originally conceived as a special beer to serve to people at the inaugural Hop City festival back in 2017. Verdant wanted to take something that would stand shoulder to shoulder with the big boys and girls in the hazy world. Our head brewer James was desperate to build the perfect New England DIPA.
The recipe has remained untouched from the first brew. A malt base of Golden Promise with a higher than normal wheat malt amount alongside loads of oats and flaked wheat to round it off. There’s a really soft water profile at play and huge equal whirlpool additions of Galaxy, Mosaic and Azacca, followed up by a massive dry-hop with equal parts Mosaic/Galaxy with slightly less Azacca.
“Mango, lemon, citrus and earthy pines. Peaches, passion and mixed tropical fruits. The hoppiest beer we have produced so far. A showcase of the New England Style. Loaded with Galaxy, Mosaic and Azacca hops expect masses of mango, lemon, citrus and pine alongside peach, passion fruit and mixed tropical fruits.”
