842 is a modern take on the classic American pale ale. We start with a very small bitter hop addition of Magnum during the beginning of the boil. During the final whirlpool stage, however, we throw in a ton of northwestern “C” hops to get as much fruity, crisp citrus flavor and aroma as we can. We then dry hop the bejeezus out of it with more citrus-forward hops. A touch of caramel malt gives the grainy backbone just enough assertiveness to balance the huge hoppy character in this beer. We ferment this brew dry where the addition of flaked oats provides just enough velvety smooth mouthfeel to really drive the flavors home. Hop lovers rejoice!
