Mimosa IPA

Mimosa IPA


Sour IPA / 6.7% ABV, 25 IBU, 5 SRM

Local Solstice Pale malt, White Wheat malt. Flaked Oats, Mandarina Bavaria hops, American Ale Yeast
Taking a nod from the New England IPA (NEIPA) hop profile, mouthfeel, and body, we loaded this beer up with newer German hops that showcase an orange fruitiness, then gave this beer a mild sourness that makes the orange character more pronounced. We then added Cara Cara Orange and Tangerine puree to push this beer into the mimosa range of fruit flavor for a super unique and wonderfully refreshing beer!
Although not an official BJCP style, sour IPA is a mixed-fermentation beer that’s a hybrid between an IPA and a sour beer. Sourness provides a delicious layer of lip-smacking acidity, giving the tropical flavors added punch. Sour IPA should not be bitter. Bitter and sour flavors can clash in beer.
Three Tricksters - by Trent Call
Tricksters, as archetypal characters, appear in the myths of many different cultures. Lewis Hyde describes the trickster as a "boundary-crosser". The trickster crosses and often breaks both physical and societal rules: Tricksters "violate principles of social and natural order, playfully disrupting normal life and then re-establishing it on a new basis."

Often, this bending or breaking of rules takes the form of tricks or thievery. Tricksters can be cunning or foolish or both. The trickster openly questions, disrupts or mocks authority. They are often male characters, and are fond of breaking rules, boasting, and playing tricks on both humans and gods.

Many cultures have tales of the trickster, a crafty being who uses tricks to get food, steal precious possessions, or simply cause mischief. In some Greek myths Hermes plays the trickster. He is the patron of thieves and the inventor of lying, a gift he passed on to Autolycus, who in turn passed it on to Odysseus. In Slavic folktales, the trickster and the culture hero are often combined.

Frequently the trickster figure exhibits gender and form variability. In Norse mythology the mischief-maker is Loki, who is also a shape shifter. Loki also exhibits gender variability, in one case even becoming pregnant. He becomes a mare who later gives birth to Odin's eight-legged horse Sleipnir.

In a wide variety of African-language communities, the rabbit, or hare, is the trickster. In West Africa (and thence into the Caribbean via the slave trade), the spider (Anansi) is often the trickster.- wikipedia.org
