To Ol Insane In The Grain
Brewery: To Øl
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 330ml Bottle
Friends, please welcome our new beer: Insane in the Grain! Our take on a rustic multigrain IPA, featuring both wheat, oat, rye and barley. Full bodied IPA with crispyness, elegance and complexity.
For this beer we tried playing around with different grain varieties to alter the flavour and mouthfeel. On paper most grains like barley, wheat, oats and rye looks fairly identical. A big amount of starch and carbohydrates, alongside some proteins, some fats and varying degree of fibres. Especially the dietary fibres in the grains vary, from cellulose, hemi-cellulose, beta-glucans, pentosans, lignin etc. And the protein composition for each grain can be very different (that's why the bread you bake can change so much in volume and texture, depending on the flour you use). These four different grains change the flavour, appearance, texture and aroma of the beer. You get sweet spicyness from the rye, well rounded mouthfeel from the oats, stout foam and aroma from the wheat and well, yes, barley is what makes beer beer! We are most certainly proud of how this rustic multigrain IPA turned out.
Dryhopped with Amarillo and Simcoe, this piney-peachy resinous orange zest aroma goes perfect to the grains! Despite all the additions of grains, we can't really promise that you can cover your healthy wholegrain intake by drinking this beer!
