Dogfish Head American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA
This unfiltered IPA is brewed with the ancient heirloom grain Spelt to cast haze & dosed with a special yeast to liberate aromatic hop-compounds. It's been a long strange trip, and we're not about to stop now. After six years and four releases of American Beauty, we're back with an encore … only this time you haven't heard the melody. Together with the Grateful Dead, we're proud to introduce our latest collaborative iteration - American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA. Inspired by the Grateful Dead's beloved "American Beauty" album, American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA is an unfiltered India Pale Ale brewed with spelt - an ancient heirloom grain that contributes earthy notes and a natural haze - that's then dosed with a special yeast variety to accentuate hop aromatics. The result is a psychedelic 7.0% ABV ale that's bursting with notes of tropical fruit and juicy citrus, while the style callout lovingly references the fan-favorite track "Ripple."
