Upstreet releases Kettle Soured IPA

(Charlottetown, PE) - In honour of International IPA Day Upstreet Craft Brewing is releasing Island Hopspitality 2017 coming in at  4.5% ABV and 10 IBU. 
The beer they have made is a hazy, sour, and hoppy and technically might classify as a Kettle Soured New England Session IPA, as they have become fameous for untraditional. Upstreet says "Using a light pilsner-base malt in combination with equal parts wheat, oats, and light crystal, lends some nice body and residual sweetness to an otherwise thin beer. This was soured in the kettle using naturally-occurring lactobacillus from grain in a 2-step 72-hr process. For the "IPA" part , we generously hopped using our new double-whirlpool and double-dry hopping techniques, derived for Go Devil, with Centennial, Azacca and Sorachi Ace."
It is their first full-batch sour and will be releasing it on Thursday August 3rd at opening.
