Guest Beer - Alvarado Street - Soft Tones

A beer shipped in especially for GP + Friends 2019, as a part of the Road to Beervana celebrations. 

In this beer they've focused on extracting high levels of geraniol & linalool, monoterpenes present in the natural oils of hops which contribute much of the aroma and flavour we all crave in IPA. They’ve employed a hybrid ale / lager strain to assist with biotransformation of said monoterpenes into other types for added aroma and complexity. We’re picking up intense floral notes of geranium & jasmine in this beer, along with grapefruit, pomelo and passionfruit. Dry hopped according to oil profile with both cryo & pellet forms of Simcoe, Ekuanot & Loral.
