GREELEY, Colo. — Wiley Roots Brewing Company has announced the release of three new IPAs, including its collaboration with Fiction Beer Company, for the weekend of Collaboration Fest. Starting at 12 p.m. on Friday, March 15, 2019, the brewery will release Citradiculous IPA, Key Lime County Fair Cobbler milkshake sour IPA and Juice Loop IPA.
Citradiculous is a New England IPA made with only citra hops lending huge orange, lime, and lemon notes. This beer begins with dominate aromatics of orange zest, accompanied by flavors of orange juice and ripe citrus. Citradiculous showcases citra hops and finishes with a subtly dry citrus bite, but yet is refreshing and balanced.
Key Lime County Fair Cobbler is the next offering the brewery’s lineup of milkshake sour IPAs, and was brewed with puréed key limes, graham cracker, cinnamon, vanilla and lactose, and is also dry hopped with mandarina bavaria and lemondrop hops. This is the seventh release in the series, which focuses on using fruit and pie adjuncts to recreate fan-favorite dessert pastries. The County Fair Cobbler series is a complete shift from some of the hoppy kettle sours it has brewed in the past by intentionally changing aspects of the beer using lactose, specific yeast strains that express fruit character, souring cultures that maintain balance, hop varietals that complement the fruit aspects of the beer and water chemistry that enhances body and hop perception to arrive at a base beer that lends to a heavy handed use of adjuncts and whole fruit.
Juice Loop is a New England IPA made with experimental hops 06300 and 06297 (Lotus), and combines both base New England IPA recipes from Wiley Roots and Fiction. The two breweries collaborated on the beer because of a mutual admiration for each brewer’s approach to the style. By incorporating experimental hops, both breweries were able to create something new and exciting. Juice Loop will be available at Wiley Roots starting Friday, along with Citradiculous and Key Lime County Fair Cobbler and at Collaboration Fest on Saturday. Fiction Plans to release Juice Loop in their Denver taproom on March 23 to coincide with other events for Colorado Craft Beer Week.
