A Note on This Beer
Alright, fellow beer geeks! Pull on your lab coats and don your safety goggles, because to explain why today’s beer is so special, we’re going to have to drop some science.
Beer is full of little molecules called thiols that mostly come from hops. Some of them taste amazing — in fact, many of the fruity flavors we love in Hazy IPAs come directly from thiols — but most of them we can’t taste at all.
Until now. There’s a brand new yeast called Cosmic Punch, and it’s been scientifically designed for one thing: it can manipulate the flavorless thiols and unlock their secret deliciousness! Suddenly, molecules you didn’t even know were there are bathing your taste buds in notes of nectrous guava, exotic kiwi, and playful bubblegum!
To unlock the awesome power of Cosmic Punch, the Drekker crew packed in the thiols with a weighty addition of Hallertau Blanc and Belma Hops. After letting this innovative new yeast strain work for a while, they cranked it up another notch by dry-hopping with more Hallertau Blanc and Belma, along with a dose of their hand-selected Citra Hops.
Take a sip, and you’ll discover bold splashes of tangerine and grapefruit flowing alongside big stone fruit flavors from peach to apricot. And that’s on top of all those candied tropical fruit aromas from the Cosmic Punch!
If you want to find out exactly how this yeast works with the thiols to make this beer taste so good, you’ll have to find someone smarter than me to explain it all to you. If you want to find out what it tastes like, all you have to do is grab yourself a can of Benevolent Intentions.
