Mesocyclone is a storm-scale region of rotation that can lead to a tornado. A Doppler alert was issued not too far from the brewery so naturally we took flight to investigate. What followed was an amazing almost UFO-like whirling structure complete with lightning bolts. If you watch the video to the end, the mesocyclone leads to an incredible change of sky color, sometimes even producing COTTON CANDY SKIES… but more on that soon…
We started with a base of wheat and flaked oats before a giant mesocyclone of El Dorado, Citra, Belma, and Galaxy in the whirlpool followed up with the same hops in the Dry Hop. Mesocyclone pours an opaque bright yellow with an aroma of orange marmalade and tropical fruits. Flavors of just squeezed oranges, passionfruit, and ripe peach lead into a creamy mouthfeel with pops of fresh fruit. The masked ABV is makes this beer tasty and flavorful while remaining totally drinkable for its size.
