Double Dry-Hopped India Pale Ale
SOB/Adler/Binny’s/Omega Yeast/Country Malt Group/Hopsteiner Collaboration
To honor and commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest achievements of Mankind, we reached for inspiration from the stars. Our four hops we chose were obvious selections, Apollo, Comet, Galaxy, and Strata. Project Apollo has a beautiful light orange hue and an aroma that feels like it’s erupting from the bottom of a Saturn 5. This beer pulls from the earth and the sky for its flavors and aromas. It’s a blend of grapefruit citrus, passionfruit tropical; astrally fruity and bolstered by our Norwegian farmhouse yeast from Omega that makes it totally out of this world. Apollo has a balanced bitterness with a gently fruity sweet finish. We think it’s a fitting tribute worthy of such a great milestone.
From seamstresses to engineers to those supporting the astronauts from the command center on Earth, we choose to honor those outside the spotlight. In collaboration with the partners above we have made an IPA in celebration of the incredible human achievement accomplished by the Apollo Missions with proceeds supporting Adler Planetarium and its programs.
