Kryptonite is a golden beer with a nose of mango, clementine and pine resin. The palate evokes sour orange and dried apricot aromas, all of which stretch out to a sharp, resinous bitter finish.
Brewed with oat flakes, malted wheat and Golden Promise malt, and heavily hopped throughout the whirlpool phase, it was afterwards dry-hopped during the fermentation process, so it would benefit from the biotransformation and chemistry between the Vermont Ale yeast and aromatic hops (Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, Amarillo and Centennial).
Created for our 12th anniversary, this beer inspired by the NEIPA style is a hop bomb that will paralyze your taste buds, as if you were Superman facing a mountain of kryptonite. Like him, you’ll fall on your knees, powerless and overwhelmed by this beverage from so far away, and yet, so close. It will remind you of your origins, your humanity and the importance of enjoying the passage of time, an unalterable and intangible monolith.
