DIP HOP HAZY IPA
Collaboration with Finback Brewery
Paper Planes epitomize child-like imagination and the magic of travel. Just as you would craft a cool paper plane by designing, prototyping and iterating, our latest release by the same name is a collaboration with our friends from Finback NYC.
Our friends from Finback may not be able to get on a plane to come physically brew with us, but it won't stop us from collaborating on cool new ideas. Our fourth hazy collaboration with Finback, Paper Plane uses a unique technique called dip hopping to accentuate fruit-forward aromatics from select American hop varietals while minimizing the extraction of allium-forward notes. We steeped Michigan-grown Chinook in hot water before transferring cool wort for fermentation, transforming their aroma characteristics. Further charging with a massive load of hand-selected Cascade from Yakima Valley, the beer is bursting with dried mango and zesty grapefruit. With a mash heavy on wheat and oats, we used Opshaug Kveik for rustic fermentation.
