The go-to for juicy, hazy, NE IPAs. Hardly a one-trick pony, it can also be a great choice as a house ale strain.
Juicy. Fruity. Juice is the go-to strain for hazy, juicy New England style IPAs. The ester profile of Juice brings out the aromas and flavors of the new school hops and creates a beer that is greater than the sum of its parts. Resulting in a beer that is at once round in mouthfeel but retains a nice sharp citrus edge. Keep an eye on this strain, it likes to move to the top of fermentation and will climb out the fermenter if too full.
This strain has demonstrated the need for higher wort dissolved oxygen (DO) levels than most ale strains. Target 20-25 ppm DO or set the oxygen regulator flow to 50% higher than normal.
