SMaSH: Vienna/El Dorado

One of our favorite Single Malt and Single Hop (SMaSH) combinations. An easy drinking hazy IPA loaded with El Dorado hop character, but still plenty of Vienna malt goodness to back it up.

Vienna malt is just one of the malts that you can’t go wrong with. Many other brewers are using at least a portion of it in their IPA recipes as a way to add malt complexity without using caramel/crystal malts. El Dorado is is versatile hop that lends a wonderful tangerine and dry orange peel character but also has a subtle resinous quality. We chose not to clarify this beer, as the yeast used is ideal for hazy IPA’s.
