From the Heart - A Cold IPA,
The biggest collaborative experiment for Ohio craft brewers is back! This year we were honored to be given the opportunity to have our master brewer, Jack Kephart, develop the recipe in collaboration with our supplier partners. The recipe we ended on was a cold IPA absolutely smashed with Belma, Strata, and Zappa hops! The result is a snappy IPA with clean notes of tangerine, unripe melon, and young pine. It pours a bright warm orange color and finishes with a punchy American hop bitterness.
The recipe was devised by Jack Kephart, award-winning brewmaster at The Brew Kettle, and Whitney Thompson of Origin Malt, an Ohio-based ingredient supplier that donated the base barley malt for the project.
The flagship batch of From the Heart: Volume 3 was brewed at The Brew Kettle on Monday, April 17 by Kephart and Thompson, along with brewers from The Phoenix Brewing Company in Mansfield and Upside Brewing in Sylvania. The brewing system used at The Brew Kettle Production Works in Middleburg Heights was formerly installed at Tröegs Independent Brewing in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and was used by Thompson while she was employed as a brewer there.
On tap and limited cans are available at all our Brew Kettle pubs this week.
