What is a Triple Dry-Hopped Super-Saturated Cold IPA?

It’s a fair question to find on the side of a beer can and you can’t blame someone for not knowing the answer. The solution to that riddle is the second instalment in Bridge Road’s New Sky IPA series, with Vol. 2: Spectrum Super Cold. The IPA makes full use of Hop Product Australia’s Spectrum -a hop liquid specifically designed for dry hopping. Here it features in the shape of Eclipse, Citra and Mosaic, while further doses of Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy join the party in the shape of more traditional pellets.

As for that “triple dry-hop super-saturation”, the cold IPA was first hopped at the start of fermentation to engage in the fine art of biotransformation which makes hazy IPAs what they are. The second was added at the end of fermentation and after the beer was crash-chilled and centrifuged, the final hop addition came along, with Spectrum the star of that stage. The result is a hazy and pale yellow beer with impressive aromatics of grapefruit, resin and pine, while passionfruit, further citrus flavours and a big hit of resin all hit the palate like a wave. True to its "spectrum" name, this is one broad and varied IPA with the lush and richer notes of a hazy, the crisp finish of a cold IPA and the bitter bite of a West Coast all at play.
