sixpoint’s spice of life series is an ongoing, monthly installment in which sixpoint produces a single-hop ipa with 12 different hop strains over the course of the year. all other elements of the recipe remain the same – the malt bill, fermentation regime, yeast strain, etc. the only ongoing variable is a different hop strain is featured each month. under this “controlled experiment” one can appreciate the dynamic difference between various hop strains, covering a wide spectrum of flavors and aromas. and that’s why we love sixpoint.
this week we have the last installment in the 2012 series, spice of life crystal. the crystal hop is known for its floral – spicy notes and low bitterness, making it the perfect choice for a cold beer on a hot august day. come check it out while it lasts.
