O’Fallon Brewery, brewers of 5-Day IPA have launched a new imperial IPA – 10-Day IPA. This hoppy newbie has over three pounds of hops per barrel. (Note: That’s a lot of hops.) A bolder compliment to the brewery’s 5 Day IPA offering.
O’Fallon’s Brewmaster: The result is a very hop forward beer, but 10-Day also has a sturdy malt backbone which balances the beer. The malt also gives 10-Day IPA a subtle caramel sweetness and a hint of honey bothwhich help balance hop bitterness. Once the beer was finished Owens added even more Centennial, Chinook and Calypso hops (a process called “dry hopping”) to give the beer a huge citrusy, piney aroma which has become the signature of American Imperial IPAs.
