Today, Newtown brewers and distillers, Young Henrys take a dive down the fox hole to reveal their latest Brewers B-Side, an experimental IPA to join their stacked beer roster, officially launching Phantasmic Mr Hops. Joining the fun on the Wes Anderson video trend storming the internet, check out Young Henrys Phantasmic Mr. Hops launch content HERE.
A Young Henrys take on a trendy cinematic classic, Phantasmic Mr Hops is a 7% experimental IPA utilising an innovative new flavour-producing compound named Phantasm. A powder derived from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc grapes, Phantasm is your taste ticket to tropical beer land. The organic compound increases the production of thiols, which are the aroma-active ingredients responsible for jacking up the fruity and juicy flavours in your brewski. It’s basically the MSG for beer. From the experts in stepping outside the lines and venturing into the world of the unknown, Young Henrys’ Phantasmic Mr Hops combines Phantasm with a healthy dose of hops, including Simcoe Cryo, Sabro and Taiheke, and two experimental US hops (HBC 1019 and HBC 586). The result is a flavour sensation, drawing waves of caramelised coconut, sauteed pineapple and vacation citrus in every sip before giving way to a creamy luxurious body and mouthfeel.
“We hadn’t done a B-Side in a while, so the Brew Crew wanted to make this one super special. We used ingredients and processes that we had never tried before – from the malt, to the hops, the yeast, the process aids, and brewing processes themselves – almost everything was a first. This beer is different from any in our core range, but still stands up as moreish and balanced. We hope everyone enjoys drinking it as much as we did making it!” – Jesse Searls, Young Henrys Head Brewer
The beer cleverly pays homage to the Wes Anderson film Fantastic Mr Fox with its name, Phantasmic Mr Hops. Young Henrys takes pride in using fine ingredients and processes to create exceptional brews, and just like Mr Fox, who cunningly acquires fine ingredients and alcoholic beverages, this beer embodies that adventurous spirit.
Dedicated to championing the people, bringing quality frothies to the people of Australia, the Young Henrys crew expand their wide-repertoire of delicious flavour profiles, with an intelligent new experimental IPA in Young Henrys’ Phantasmic Mr Hops. Joining their Brewers B-Side range, the alternative tracks to their hit singles including limited bangers like Wattle They Think Of Next, Dark Sour of the Moon, From Where You’d Guava Be and more, expect the unexpected and wash away your winter woes with this tropical new wonder.
Our lactose-free friends will need to steer clear of this B-Side, but can still enjoy the rest of the Young Henrys core range. Phantasmic Mr Hops is available in bottle-o’s nationally in singles, 4-packs and cases, rally your mates and jump on the Young Henrys website to secure your taste of paradise today.
