Welcome to Bar Back!
Aloha Sculpin IPA features a distinct yeast strain known as Saccharomyces “Bruxellensis” Trois, or Brux Trois, turning the flagship IPA into a tropical oasis with aromas and flavors of guava, mango, and pineapple without any fruit additions. While Belgian yeast strains are known for their clove and banana-like aroma, this strain bears exotic fruit aromas. It also adds a slight haze to the beer, creating a smooth mouthfeel to round out its juicy character.
Not only does this yeast strain add a unique flavor profile to the brew, but its use in Aloha Sculpin marks the first time an IPA brewed with Saccharomyces brux Trois is being packaged and made available nationwide.
