Epic Hop Dozer NZIPA (500ml Bottle)
Inspired by the Epic Team's trip to the Nelson hop grown region region during hop harvest. Where we saw the Hop Bulldozer moving huge piles of hops around the drying room getting ready for baling.
The label captures the colours from our visits to the hop farms. The green of the hops, and the orange of the safety vests, with reflective strips.
The beer is driven by three NZ grown hops. Brooklyn, Riwaka and Styrian Goldings. They contribute citrus, orange and marmalade to the aroma and flavour. The rich malt base gives a sweet maltiness to balance the dominant NZ hop flavours.
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.
