"Sozonozo roughly translates to ‘Imagined Elephant’. The artist who created the original sculptures, found on the Nikko Toshogu Shrine, had never seen an elephant before, so instead sculpted them from a description he was given. Artist Daniel Junsei took these sculptures and adapted them for our cans, adding another reimagining of his own. This beer is also reimagined. Sozonozo is a pale ale, but more highly charged with hops, malt character, and a more robust 5% abv backbone. Brewed with Norweigan super yeast Voss Kveik which adds subtle stone fruit aromas, the beer is dry-hopped generously with Galaxy and Mosaic hops to give the beer a more full, juicy and tropical aroma. This is supported by a biscuity and velvety malt base of British Maris Otter barley and flaked oats."
