Ballast Point Homework Series Batch No. 1 Hoppy Red Ale

Ballast Point Brewing Company

Details

Name Ballast Point Homework Series Batch No. 1 Hoppy Red Ale
Company Ballast Point Brewing Company
Style Hoppy Red Ale
ABV 7
IBU 65
About A Hybrid-Style Ale with a rich, Oktoberfest inspired malt base and a slamming hop profile, very similar to an India Pale Ale. CTZ (Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus) hops are added to the boil for bitterness, and copious amounts of Centennial hops are added during the late kettle hop addition and dry hopping post fermentation. In the Great American Beer Festival Style Guidelines there is a gap between the American-Style Amber/Red Ale and Imperial Red Ale. This beer fills this gap, whether you call it a Hoppy Red Ale or an India Red Ale, one thing is for sure…you will call it good.
