Mata Matawhaka Imperial IPA (500ml Bottle)
Matawhaka Imperial IPA takes on a journey as we discover the hops in the crown. We source the most aromatic big ace hops available for each batch from New Zealand, America and Australia and commit to brewing a Matawhaka every time.
A beer to explore and rule your taste-buds.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
