Kallisto: our first in an ongoing series of experimental IPA’s. Calista is the name of a new German hop that is a wonderful blend of bright melons, pear, tropical notes, and floral noble hops... So, we named this IPA "Kallisto," after the Greek virgin who was seduced by Zeus-- the origin story of the Ursa Major constellation. At 7%, Kallisto features a similar soft water profile (like our Double IPA, Goodvice) which accentuates the aromatics and flavor of the hop while minimizing the potential bitterness.
@wildheaveneric created this one a couple months ago and we kept bugging him to make it again. Maybe you had it around town or in our Taproom? By the moon and the stars, it happened-- Calista, reborn as Kallisto is here among us. AND we've got a rare 100 cases of 12 ounce cans available at the brewery this Saturday, 9/23. We're opening early at noon, scoot by to grab em and go-- or stash em in the car and hang out for a bit!
