Emersons Bird Dog IPA (500ml Bottle)
After two years of development on tap in our Dunedin Sound Series, Bird Dog India Pale Ale is now in our 500ml bottle. The combination of NZ and US hops in the boil, the hopback, and dry hopping, along with traditional bottle conditioning makes this true India Pale Ale a significant addition to our range. Bird Dog has always been a tribute to The Verlaines album.
India Pale Ale & IPA
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
