Natty Greene’s Elm Street English-style IPA will join the brewery’s lineup starting in April. The traditional English-style is named for the for the street where the original brewhouse is located. The silo on the label is still on Elm Street.
Like a Traditional English IPA, Elm Street has a strong maltiness that is accented by an earthy, herbal hop note. Its malt forward character is preserved and highlighted by using a London-style yeast. Natty Greene’s adds their American touch by dry hopping the brew with three Oregon varieties. Unlike the herbal-note hops used by the Brits, Oregon hops give a fruitier flavor and peach-like tone that, added with the malt profile, create a well-rounded and refined IPA.
Natty Green’s Elm Street hits distribution the first week of April. Expect it on tap until June.
