MadTree Partners with STEM Non-Profit to Launch New Canned IPA

imageFrom MadTree:

CINCINNATI (June 26, 2017) – MadTree Brewing spent nearly two years carefully researching and experimenting before launching cans of their newest IPA, Entropic Theory, on Thursday, June 29. This heavily hopped beer leads with a soft, tropical fruit flavor rather than traditional, extreme, bitter flavors. The brewing and quality lab teams at MadTree methodically developed this beer through more than twenty different recipe iterations as a part of their Treesearch Experimental IPA project.

MadTree was founded with a very scientific approach to brewing beer. Therefore, it was a natural fit to partner with iSPACE, a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) 501(c)(3) non-profit, to raise money to promote STEM education for children around the region. It also supports MadTree’s core belief that beer builds community and community builds beer.

“The Treesearch project and Entropic Theory were the byproduct of a close partnership of the brewers and lab staff to create such an amazing tropical fruit flavor profile,” said MadTree Brewing lab manager, Ellen Lehman. “It was a really rewarding process to use science to create art.”

In Physics, entropic theories generally describe forces that emerge from ever-increasing entropy. Jargon aside, Entropic Theory (the beer) refers to a unique feature of all these entropic forces – they are chaotic and unpredictable at infinitesimally tiny distances, yet develop ordered patterns over large distances. A useful illustration of this concept would be an artistic mosaic, which appears to be a random collection stone or glass pieces at a short distance. However, at a greater distance, patterns emerge from what appeared to be disorder. This emergence of order from chaos can also be seen in the fermentation process, which involves the chaotically complex conversion of wort to beer by yeast.

On Thursday, June 29, MadTree will donate a portion of proceeds from all Entropic Theory single can, six-pack, and merchandise sales from 4PM-8PMin the MadTree taproom (3301 Madison Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45209) to iSPACE. Additionally, iSPACE will be on-site with STEM demonstrations and activities for kids. Catch-A-Fire Café will offer some special menu items along with their full menu all day.

There will be a limit of one case of cans per person. Can and draft distribution to restaurants, bars, and retailers will begin June 30. Find more information about upcoming Entropic Theory launch events at http://madtreebrewing.com/events.

Mybeerbuzz .com Highlights Drake’s Kick Back IPA & Foraging Raccoon IPA

25 June 2017

imageA big welcome to Drake’s Brewing in San Leandro, CA for joining in on the sampling program at mybeerbuzz.com.  As an east-coaster, I’ve only managed to get to try their Aroma Coma, so I’m really excite to get my hands on these new Drake’s beers.

Because I’m always interviewing for this year’s beach beer, today we’re starting out with Drake’s Kick Back IPA.  This beer first debuted on draft at Session Fest and last year it helped raise over $10K to support East Bay Regional Parks.  Kick Back is a sessionable IPA that is brewed with Simcoe, Mosaic and El Dorado hops and at 4.3%-AbV, it’s perfect for the summer, and perfect for the beach….so how does it taste?



Kick Back pours a rich golden color with loads of apricot and citrus aromas.  If you love peach aromas in your hops, this is your beer.  The flavors follow with apricot, citrus and a really flavorful balance of tropical fruit flavors and a crisp clean finish.  The hop-force is strong with this one and the mouthfeel and satisfying flavors in the beer really surprised us when we read the AbV.  If big hop flavor and being able to stand up at the end of the day is important to you (as it is to me) then Kick Back IPA will allow you to do just that…and I can’t wait to try it on the beach.

Up next we couldn’t resist their new Foraging Raccoon IPA.  This beer pays tribute to their “mischievous trash panda” and it is now available in bottles.  Originally designed as part of their “X” Series of IPA’s, Foraging Raccoon uses El Dorado, Equinox, Lemondrop, Mandarina Bavaria and the new Idaho #7 hops as well as a “simple grist” to create the final recipe.
image
Foraging Raccoon digs in with early citrus and tangerine aromas with just a touch of slightly sweetened lemon.  The aromas finish with sticky citrus as the flavors begin with tangerine and lemon.  The balance of this beer is incredible and the mouthfeel is light and clean.  The hops launch in with tropical fruits and finish with a dank citrus we really liked.  All in all this is a really  exciting IPA and at 7.5%-AbV and 80 IBU, you will enjoy it more with each sip.
image
Foraging Raccoon is available now in 22oz bottles and Kick Back IPA is available now in 12oz bottles and on draft…so get out there and try both of these beer for yourself.  And when you do sample them, be sure to let us know what YOU think.
