Emerson's Brewers Reserve - Acid Trip

We recently had Emerson's Nap in the Chair on one of our guest taps and and now we're pouring Acid Trip, the next in line in this Emerson's pale ale evolution.

Acid Trip has less hop bitterness than Nap as the Emerson's brew team backed off on the Centennial hops and "grooved" in a little more US Zythos and US Simcoe. A different hopping technique was also employed called fermenter hopping; adding hops to the fermenter (funnily enough) halfway through the fermenting process - rather than dry hopping, as was the case with Nap.

The result? A session ale with more of that signature Emerson's malt balance and softer, juicier hop flavours. 

Acid Trip is only available for a short space of time from limited outlets, so we're excited to have it on tap at Atlas. Apparently the third version in the is in the brew kettle right now. The name, we're sure, will be equally as inventive. There's certainly no denying that the Emerson's crew keep themselves entertained when thinking up names for their beers!
