Beer of the Week 7/12: Tropical Shape of Haze to Come
Updated: Oct 5, 2020
Beer: Tropical Shape of Haze to Come
Type: Double IPA
Brewer: Neshaminy Creek Brewing
Location: Croydon, PA
I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t love everything that I’ve tasted from Neshaminy Creek. I do, however, enjoy the imperial IPA they produce called The Shape of Hops to Come. So when I found this tropical twist on one of their staples I figured I’d give it a go. And wow, I’m glad I did.
Neshaminy Creek, just outside of Philly in Croydon, PA, introduced this unfiltered beer just about a week ago (talk about coming onto the scene with a bang). This DIPA is brewed with flaked oats and wheat, and is kettle hopped with Simcoe, Ekuanot, and Mosaic hops and then dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic. The tropical fruit, which loads the initial aroma and the entirety of the sip, comes from being conditioned on passionfruit and coconut puree. The coconut is extremely apparent - which some may not enjoy - but crushing this brew on a hot day just hits the spot. It’s extremely flavorful, so sit back and let your taste buds decide!
