TACOMA PREFUNK TUESDAY, MAY 29 2018: Everybody’s Brewing On That Dust IPA and slam poetry

PREFUNK: Remember when Austin Powers came out of the cryogenic process, which took a while to comp … compl… complete, the International Man of Mystery underwent laser cutting, the warm liquid goo phase, reanimation, cleansing and evacuation — all in that order. That last one just took a long time. Yakima Chief Hop Union’s innovative cryogenic process doesn’t take as long, and there isn’t a warm liquid goo phase, but the results are delicious craft beers. Using YCH Hops’ innovative cryogenic process, lupulin glands are separated from the hop cone, leaving behind a “hop powder” containing all the flavor and aroma oils. “Cryo Hops” showcase pronounced juicy and resinous flavors with greatly reduced grassy characteristics. Everybody’s Brewing’s On That Dust IPA (6.8% ABV, 65 IBU) bursts with Cryo pure lupulin powder sourced from Mosaic, Citra and Ekuanot hops for a fresh hops with a nice balance between resin and citrus wet grain and pale malt aroma. The flavor is similar to nose with slight sweetness. Everybody’s Brewing’s On That Dust IPA flows from Peaks and Pints’ Western red cedar tap log.
