    Psychedelic Arcade is a new West Coast Double IPA brewed with pilsner malt and rye malt for a snappy, dry malt profile with a bit of extra texture and roundness from the rye. The appearance is a bright gold color and is unfiltered so may have a hint of haze but is brewed in the West Coast style so retains a mostly clear appearance. We used Simcoe hops in the boil for a firm and pleasant bitterness, while more Simcoe and Idaho 7 hops in the whirlpool lay down a piney and fruity foundation for the hop aroma. An early dry hop with Mosaic hops layers in berry and dank aromas, while a second dry hop with Galaxy, Strata, and Simcoe adds big tropical fruit, grapefruit, and dank, resinous pine to the flavor profile. Fermentation with our house ale yeast fills out the flavor profile with fruity esters and a dry finish from the low finishing gravity. Overall, it’s a modern take on a West Coast Double IPA with a huge fruity hop aroma and a clean, dry finish with a balanced bitterness.
