First up, this Patrons Project is a sour IPA inspired by the colours and flavours of rainbow Astro Belts.
Northern Monk started with a simple hazy IPA base of pale barley malt and plenty of oats, backed up with lactose to round out the mouthfeel. They whirlpool hopped with Citra BBC and then fermented with their house IPA yeast strain.
Then, they added selected fruits to represent the colours of the candy that was felt worked well together.
Leading with the ripe fruit flavours of mango puree and orange juice, it was followed up with plenty of tangy raspberry puree, and finally, a touch of zingy lime juice to give a sour accent to the finish.
Aollaboration with the excellent Manchester graffiti artist Leimai Lemaow.
