Whiplash Always Half Strange 5.7%


Tasting Note

Whiplash's take on a modern Belgian Pale Ale is Always Half Strange, using a traditional Belgian base pale ale and throwing in a complimenting mix of American hop varieties. Using a base of Pilsner malt, Cara Malt, Wheat and some Irish Flaked Oats this one gets a heavily hopped whirlpool treatment, of El Dorado in this case, before being fermented on their house Belgian yeast. They then dry hop in two stages with Hallertau Blanc, BRU-1 and Azacca up to 16g/L as is their modus operandi.

The result is that meeting of old world and new with Hallertau Blanc giving a wine like but continental hoppy base for BRU-1 to push its bubblegum on top and Azacca to flesh out the whole affair with ripe pineapple and a touch of dank. Lightly hazy from heavy hopping, this beer finished refreshingly dry while remaining bright, light and pretty refreshing with a pretty heavy nose of all things esters and hops.
