These days American IPA’s are brewed to be drunk fresh and use obscene amounts of fragrant American hops that give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character. We’ve used three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook. Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops, beautiful and fragrant they exude grapefruit and floral character, the Simcoe tempers this fruit character with its more savoury pine resin
character. With our US West Coast ale yeast strain sourced from an American craft brewery giving such a clean fermentation profile these hops shine through explosively giving you a fantastic IPA to brew at home that will rival the world’s best!
Our IPA pours like a true IPA, pale gold with a fluffy white head, the aroma of this beer hits you immediately, intense pine and grapefruit character a side of tropical fruit salad.
On the palate this beer has just enough malt to hold the crazy amounts of hops we’ve put in it giving you a riot of flavours tending toward the pine resin from the Simcoe, bitterness is full on refreshing the palate and inviting another sip.
Pours pale gold, fluffy white head.
Wonderful aroma of tropical and citrus fruits, a fantastic comination of fresh fruit, mango and grapefruit.
Great balance between malt and hops, very fruity with great overtones of pine needles, with slight herbal character with a full and lingering dry bitter flavour.
