Unusual Frequency [Track 2]
Unusual Frequency [Track 2]
a Jackie O’s-style double india pale ale, dry-hopped with citra, el dorado and idaho 7.
In 2021, we launched a series of collaborative hazy double IPA’s dubbed unusual frequency. The goal, as hazy newbs, was to explore the style through the minds of some of the best in the industry to do it. Six collaborative hazy boiz later, we feel like we accomplished just that.
With no real plan for this series beyond 2021, we didn’t really know where things would go. As we literally and figuratively ran out of brainwaves, we thought this series had simply run its course. Upon further exploration, we decided there was still much more to uncover with this beer style and our homies who crush it.
An idea to utilize sound wavelengths surfaced and then became a bit more concise. Our very own Brit Josa took that idea and said, “what if we have the brewery tell us what song best represents them and use a wavelength from that song”. And to bring it all home, add a qr code to that song on the label art so the drinker can be immersed in the full experience.
For the second of this 2022 Unusual Frequency series, we teamed up with the Appalachian (though in the Ohio neck of the woods they say lay-shin) homies at Jackie O’s Brewery of Athens, Ohio. When we asked them what band/song best represented them as a brewery, here is what they said:
If I could describe our approach to making IPA in a nutshell, I’d say that it’s driven by curiosity and playful energy when selecting hops and designing recipes, yet meticulously technical in practice. That immediately makes me think of Japanese jazz fusion. Fun and irreverent, yet done with a Japanese level of attention to detail. We at least try to aspire to that. If we’re musically channeling brewing IPA in the spring, I’d say the vibe is BREEZIN’ by Masayoshi Takanaka. The doors to the brewery are open, the weather is flannel-or-hoodie, the canning line hasn’t blown a sensor (yet), and the runoffs are easy. – Seth Morton
Oh right, about the beer. Adhering to their techniques and teachings, we set out to make a double india pale that represents how they like to do things in the Apple-lay-shin mountians in Athens, Ohio. Utilizing water from our wells, local grain and employing their techniques, the result is a triumphant and poignant approach to the modern IPA.
