Northern Monk

Northern Monk x Dogfish Head - Irked Endless Hum, 3.4%

A super session Rye IPA with orange, juniper, sage, bready earthy spices and hints of resinous citrus, and tropical fruit.

Brewed with US craft beer icons Dogfish Head, we came up with the concept over two shared ideas, firstly we both have enjoyed playing with small percentages of rye in the grist of session beers for extra depth of flavour and mouthfeel, and secondly we both enjoyed the white sage twist we added to last year's Hop City's release.

We thought it would be interesting to revisit the use of white sage in a lower ABV beer. Sam at Dogfish Head also sent us a handful of juniper berries to throw in, as they complement both the sage and the rye.
