Dialed Down builds upon the foundation of our series of Double and Triple IPA’s brewed with grape must, Dialed In and Dialed Up. For this special release, we looked back to the recipe for original iteration of Dialed In, rolling back the ABV to a more approachable 7.1% while still utilizing a mid-fermentation addition of Sauvignon Blanc juice to enhance the unique aromas and flavors offered by New Zealand Nelson Sauvin and Australian Galaxy hops.
Pouring a hazy light straw color, this IPA evokes a bevy of bright citrus grove aromas on the nose underpinned by highlights of tropical fruit and young white wine. The palate follows offering deep flavors of fresh orange, ripe papaya and ruby red grapefruit that converge with a vinous profile of succulent white peach, gooseberry, and passion fruit. With a soft, creamy mouthfeel and medium body, Dialed Down Sauvignon Blanc’s smooth finish balances its sweeter tropical tones with a gentle and faintly peppery grassy bitterness.
