Lafayette, Colorado’s Odd13 was one of the first breweries west of the Mississippi to take hazy IPAs into the world of production and distribution, launching Codename Superfan in 2015. In the years since, they’ve continued to experiment with variations on the style, and have learned much in the process. In this episode, they discuss effective ways of using cryohops, controlling polyphenol burn from high dry hopping loads, the impacts of certain hops varieties on the expression of burn, the impact of specific hops on dry hops-induced additional fermentation (aka hops creep), building base malt grist bills for pale ales, IPAs, and double IPAs, and lessons learned while kettle souring.
