Brasserie Dunham – Cyclope IPA (473ml)
Ale Learn More
Located in the small country town of Dunham, Quebec, about thirty minutes from the Vermont border, is Brasserie Dunham. Brewmaster Eloi Deit, formerly of Quebec’s famous Le Cheval Blanc, took over the struggling little brewpub as a temporary moonlighting gig. Before he knew it, he had cleaned house, ditched the recipes, and when the sun came up, he had created something truly special.
These days, Brasserie Dunham is known for a wide variety of beers, but especially their saisons and barrel aged beers. Surrounded by fruit farmers, honey producers, cideries, and wineries, Eloi’s geography is not unlike Hill Farmstead, and the effect it has on his mindset as a brewer is similarly nuanced. Beautiful, fluffy, balanced beers that are bright and full of flavor.
Dunham has released this beautifully vibrant New England style IPA featuring Galaxy and Ella hops. This is sure to have vibrant, fresh tropical fruit notes with some subtle grassy tones. Bitterness isn’t too harsh, choosing to give more juicy mouthfeel over brash bitterness – a very enjoyable IPA!
Brewed in the New England style of IPA, Cyclope sees loads of dry hopping which helps create a more juicy and aroma forward style of IPA. This was one of Dunhams first beers to go into cans, and it has since cemented itself and one of the breweries flagship hoppy beers.
