Brewery: The White Hag
Beer Name: Phantom
Style: Hazy IPA
The Phantom, Morrigan, was one of the triple goddesses in Irish mythology. She was the shapeshifter and patron deity of revenge and magic who created the clouds of fog that the Tuatha De Danann used to conceal their identities. The Fog in our hazy IPA conceals heaps of flavour and texture, perhaps unexpected for a beer of this gravity.
This is a golden, hazy and sessionable IPA, with a soft, juicy mouthfeel. Big citrus and fruity top notes accentuated by piney, dank undertones. The intentional haze is caused by withholding the finings in the kettle, allowing the proteins to remain in suspension, ultimately binding with the hop oils to deliver the freshest, hoppiest flavour possible.
Golden and hazy, with a hint of orange hues; topped off with a white fluffy head. Hop forward, juicy tropical and stone fruit, supported by dank, sticky pine. Intense tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Soft carbonation, dripping with juicy hop oils.
