India Pale Ale

Northern Monk skriver:

"Designed to be deceptive in body and flavour; we’ve been pushing our recipe development skills with new complex grist formulations, carefully sculpted water profiles and any other techniques we could uncover to build robustness. We sign
off with a 6% IPA designed to stand up to its far bigger double IPA rivals. Taking what we had learnt from beers such as Striding Edge and Helvellyn, we put together a grist of malted and flaked oats, chit malt and Vienna, a combination which gives us optimum mouthfeel, body as well as a lovely biscuit and bread malt character.

We mashed high and added maltodextrin to the kettle, a complex and largely unfermentable sugar, to further bulk up the wort. After a generous whirlpool of monk favourites Citra and Columbus, we then double dry hopped to 20g/l with the same hops plus Azacca, a hop which has really caught our attention recently for its delightful aroma of honeydew melon and passionfruit. Throw in more tropical fruit and a subtle touch of pepper and pine, the result is everything we hoped for - juicy, resinous and most definitely punching above its weight."

Northern Monk er et mirkobryggeri lokalisert i Holbeck, Leeds. 

Historien om Northern Monk startet i 2013 da Russell Bisset fikk £5,000 av sine besteforeldre som han kunne gjøre hva han ville med. Istedenfor å bruke pengene på å reise på ølreiser bestemte han seg for å starte et bryggeri sammen med Brian Dickson. I starten brygget de hos andre lokale bryggerier i Yorkshire og solgte ølet på bondens marked. Inspirasjonen for å starte et bryggeri kom fra historien og arven av ølbrygging i nord-England. I 2014 åpnet bryggeriet Northern Monk Brew Co. i bygningen "The Old Flax Store" i Leeds. Kapasiteten ble raskt brukt opp, og et nytt bryggeri ble åpnet lenger ned i gaten.
