Obelisk is a collaboration with Hyde Park Brass Band, who are local to Leeds and can seriously rock a cover of Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie. The beer itself is 5.7%, triple dry hopped of course with huge amounts of flavour but high drinkability is the name of the game with this new patrons series. We built the water to give a good inherent mouthfeel and a balanced amount of sweetness. We loaded the grist with a high percentage of oats and Vienna malt to add a robust body. Decided to keep the kettle hops to a minimum but dry hopped heavily in three stages through dry-hopping and conditioning utilising the heavyweight trio of Citra, Simcoe and Ekuanot for maximum sweet tropical fruit, pine needles and dankness!
