About Northern Monk - Patrons Project 31.02 // Smugtwo: The Awakening

It was always going to be tough to top the first installment in Northern Monk's Smug Patrons series, but they think they might just have managed it - and at a more modest ABV, no less! A mix of classic and more modern hops - from Citra to Citra Incognito, Mosaic to Sabro - is joined by the newest of the new, Cryopop™.

The latest innovation form hop kings Yakima Chief, Cryopop™ is designed to withstand even the most rigorous brewing processes while retaining a huge tropical-fruit aroma at the forefront. With a hint of fresh-squeezed orange juice courtesy of El Dorado.

That hardy Cryopop™ and Citra goes into the whirlpool, followed by a three-stage dry-hop process - including the experimental practice of hopping mid-fermentation to introduce bio-transformational flavour profiles from those hops - all in all, the equivalent of 38g/l .

What results is the hallmarks of a textbook DDH DIPA - mouth-watering stone fruit, juicy mango and berries - with glimmering citrus and an uncharacteristically herbal top-notes.
