A Note on This Beer
Elder Pine’s farmhouse brewery is nestled within a former 17-acre Christmas Tree farm.
It’s surrounded by a wealth of beautiful, overgrown evergreens, like a cabin in an enchanted wood. When the brewers needed to create more outdoor seating, they cleaned up a section of the woods, furnished it with picnic tables, and christened it “The Forest Floor.”
Now, that ethereal secret garden is the most coveted seat in the house!
And, it’s part of the inspiration behind today’s Triple IPA masterpiece, Dying on the Forest Floor, brewed specially for their second anniversary.
Elder Pine double dry hopped this explosively juicy brew with Simcoe, Citra, and Sultana Hops. The Citra and Sultana give it flavors of tropical pineapples and peaches, while Simcoe extract adds an intensely saturated mouthfeel that drips with pine sap.
The lucky few who’ve tried it are raving about this hazy juicebomb, rating it an impressive 4.29 on Untappd.
@John L. says, “Superbly crafted example of [the] NEIPA style . . . dankness kept in check, rounded finish invites you back,” and @Konr raves, “The nose is incredibly candy-like, and the ABV is not detectable. Wonderfully done.”
I’m tempted to crush this 10% ABV behemoth in a few minutes, but then I’d have to call it “dying on the living room floor.” So instead, I’ll sip it slowly, thankful that I’ve snagged one of the only cans that left the Northeast.
