Hazy IPA with Citra Cryo, Chinook, Rakau, Grapefruit zest + juice
We set ourselves a challenge with this one, attempting to achieve flavour characteristics of grapefruit without relying on huge additions of the fruit itself, and looked at all aspects of the process with this in mind.
We went with a combination of a balanced water profile and pilsner in the malt bill to enhance drinkability, and targeted a hop combination that enhances the zesty citrus aromas and punchy flavours found in grapefruit itself.
Left Handed Giant was started in Bristol when 3 friends started brewing on their small 200 litre kit. Huge demand for their stunning beer has seen them move to cuckoo brewing at other sites to quench the thirst.
