Bend, Oregon’s GoodLife Brewing announced last week the release of Secret Stash #005, the latest IPA in their experimental series and the final Secret Stash release of the year. This one is a single hop Mosaic IPA, and if you’re a fan of this hop variety, then you’ll want to seek out this beer. It’s bursting with juicy Mosaic character, with big tropical fruit character apparent even if (like me) you tend to taste more onion and garlic in this hop.
Here is the full press release:
Just in time for the Holiday’s, it’s time GoodLife Brewing releases Secret Stash #005. We hope you’ve enjoyed all the secret stashes we’ve shared with you this year, but we feel we saved the best stash of the year for last.
The latest IPA in our Secret Stash IPA Series is an all Mosaic IPA that is 6.5% ABV and 45 IBU’s. We dry hopped this beer with over 1 LB per barrel of Mosaic hops. Secret Stash #005 is full of earthy tea-like aromas, backed by a huge pungent floral and fruitiness. Ripe peach brings up the back end and balances the crisp Pilsner and American Pale base malt with Munich specialty malts. Secret Stash #005 is a light, refreshing Northwest Style IPA that’ll make even the biggest curmudgeon merry.
Secret Stash #005 will be available draft only (1/2 BBLS and 1/6 BBLS) throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho in limited quantities. Don’t miss the last stash of the year!
I believe next year, the Secret Stash series will focus on different styles, so this may quite well be your final chance to taste an IPA variant before they move on.
