Sixpoint Brewery (Brooklyn, New York) has officially introduced Binary IIPA as the first release in its brand new rotational year-round Imperial IPA series.
Meant to serve as a “connection between hop bines from opposite ends of the globe”, Binary is an Imperial India Pale Ale that sources stone fruit and tropical notes – “think mango-peach bomb” – from Galaxy hops from Tasmania, Australia while Citra hops from Yakima, Washington provide “dank citrus notes . . . complemented by complex flavors of white wine and gooseberry.” All this hop goodness is set upon an “east-meets-west” IIPA setup that features “a milder, but still present bitterness, a touch of malt sweetness, and the use of high protein malts [to create] a soft impression, almost like an NEIPA, but with subtle haze.”
“Binary is a super-expressive, hugely aromatic Double IPA. Peach, mango, and pineapple hop aromas lead the way, with orange juice citrus notes underneath. Subtle white bread malt sweetness makes any bitterness on the palate seem super low, and the peachy/tropical flavors continue to dominate. A pillowy soft mouthfeel makes this beer drink like a Northeastern style IPA, even if it doesn’t have the haze to look like one.”

You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, New York and throughout the rest of Sixpoint’s distribution network.
