An ever evolving and constantly changing version of our Double Dry Hopped Tell Tale pale ale. With Evo, we will explore various alterations of the base Tell Tale recipe, creating unique one-off beers.

DDH TELL TALE EVO / version 3 / 12.21.18

DDH Tell Tale EVO v3: With this batch we were looking to achieve a softer mouthfeel, increase yeast driven aromatics, and see how well a hop that many know and love would play with the base dry hop of Citra and Mosaic.

Much like the first iteration in the EVO series, the base dry hopping rate of Tell Tale was held constant and the “double” dry hop edition was entirely Amarillo. Amarillo is known for providing a citrusy and floral character, that works very well with other hops. For the yeast, we used the same English ale strain from On a Mountain in The Clouds and Wrastlin’ Moves to aid in mouthfeel, ester profile, and enhanced malt character.

In EVO v3, the aroma contains lots of tropical fruit, especially mango and papaya, freshly squeezed grapefruit, and a pleasant, complementary malt character. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a slightly dry finish, and softer mouthfeel.

We’re super excited about EVO v3, as it is a unique pale ale among our current hoppy beer offerings. The aroma and flavor profile create a unique experience that leave us wanting more, sip after sip. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We’d love to hear your thoughts on DDH Tell Tale EVO v3.
