Northern Monk have put together a radler-style super- sessionable light IPA blended out with the great zesty character of comminuted lemons. The grist is a mix of super pale pilsner malt and wheat, split between malted and flaked for a good mix of flavour, fermentability and mouth feel. This was the perfect opportunity to use one of their favourite hops, Lemondrop. This lesser-used US variety contributes a lovely herbal, lemon balm character with a touch of light zest which complements the fruit beautifully. They added most of the hops in the whirlpool to build in a depth of flavour and backed them up with a small dry hop for good measure. Wanting to ensure they let the aroma of the comminute shine they added 400kg mid-way through a fermentation with their house IPA yeast.
