Aroma
Floral & piney notes transition into fruity notes as it warms up. The hops, Gondhoraj zest aroma and perfumey notes create a magical lemon candy sensation.

It is a rush of hop aromatics. Medium bodied but the malt character takes a backseat. The local lemon (Gondhoraj) rind addition gives a unique bitter sweet sensation which is impossible to miss. The lemon notes are carried even after the finish which lasts for a good amount of time.

BREWING PROCESS

1. MASHING

This process adds colour, flavour and sugars, which later gets converted to all important alcohol.

2. LAUTERING

A giant colander, a slotted false floor supports the barley husks and allows the sweet liquid (known as ‘wort) to drain away.

3. BOILING

During the 90-minute boil, hops are added to the boil. Hops are a natural preservative and adds bitterness, flavor and aroma. Adding hops at the start of the boil will create tonnes of bitterness. Adding hops late in the boil add flavor and aromatics.

4. FERMENTATION

In the fermentation vessels, we add the magical ingredient…yeast! Yeast gets to work turning sugars from the malt into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Soon there are billions of yeast cells working around the clock. After 7 days, the larger sugar molecules are consumed. A beer’s strength depends on how much sugar is in the wort, and the temperature at which it ferments

5. CONDITIONING

Begin maturation! This takes 3 weeks or more. Remove the yeast, and give a standing ovation! With hoppy beers, after around 10 days we dry-hop the hell out of them! Dry-hopping is the process of adding hops to beer at low temperature post-fermentation. Due to the low temperature, none of the alpha acids in the hops convert to bitterness. Instead an avalanche of flavor and aroma is infused into the beer.
