Long Trail Releases Over The Handlebars DIPA Cans

11 May 2017

Last weekend we introduced Over the Handlebars (8.6% ABV), a brand new, super limited Double IPA exclusively available at the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners.

So, besides the name -- which pays homage to our thirst for two-wheel adventure -- what sets this beer apart from our other hop-filled offerings?

Over the Handlebars is the first beer we've created with lupulin powder, a brand new, concentrated hop product from Yakima-based hop growers,
YCH Hops.

Before we get too far, let's back up and explain what exactly lupulin is... Lupulin refers to the yellowish powder found on the hairs beneath the flowers of female hop plants.

In short, lupulin is the active ingredient of hops, which contains the resins and oils that deliver the flavors and aromas that people are looking for in their modern IPAs.

With lupulin powder, the resins and oils are concentrated and accentuated, allowing the flavor to shine bright. Our brew crew scored some Simcoe and Cascade powder, which they used in the dry-hopping to deliver super clean tropical and citrus flavors that come across more clearly -- and less bitter -- than pellets or whole-leaf hops. 

Only a handful of brewers are using lupulin powder, so we're uber excited about Over the Handlebars. Make sure to throw an extra high five at the production and retail teams who have been hand-stickering these face smashing cans. 

Over the Handlebars DIPA is now available in 4-packs of 16 ounce cans exclusively at the Long Trail Brewery.
