We have released beers named after Japanese White-eye called literally Mejiro (Me=eye and Jiro (or shiro) =white). As I was about to add a hefty amount of Galaxy for dryhop, I found out that there was a very similar bird to Mejiro in Southern Hemisphere called Silvereye. Mejiro and Silvereye look almost exactly the same, but the color tones of their chest and eyes are slightly different. A perfect beer name…..
This batch is very similar to the original Mejiro we released in the summer 2021. As expalined above, the major difference between the previous batch is the dry-hop. Galaxy gave lemon like citrus and slight piney notes which complement the style very well (probably why it is often used in hazy IPAs…). Despite the abv and hazy appearance, it is not too sweet and retains high drinkability for the style.
