TABA Riwaka is our Farmhouse IPA dry hopped with Riwaka. TABA is our rotating series that explores hop interaction with our There and Back Again cultures. This Farmhouse IPA is a collaborative effort with our dear friend Dr. Jason Rodriguez. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create a reproducible process that produces a beautiful and elegant farmhouse ale that is dry, slightly tart, full of flavor, and super drinkable. The interplay of our slow souring process, its respective microorganisms, hops, bitterness, gravity manipulation, and minerality have been through countless iterations over the years.
We took our There and Back Again cultures and allowed it ferment over several months before dry hopping it with Riwaka. We then bottle conditioned it for several months prior to today’s release. It pours a vibrant golden yellow releasing aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, funk, grassy passionfruit, earth, honeysuckle, fresh from the barn skinny margarita and lovely pops of lime all wrapped up with a balanced acidity. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.
