Epic Hop Party NZIPA (500ml Bottle)
The NZ hop harvest is coming up and we are having a party. Last year we had our first annual Hop Harvest Party in a Hop Field during Nelson Beer Week, and it was a huge success. This year we are back in the fields again for another Hop Harvest at the Oldham’s farm and the party will be even bigger. We needed the perfect NZIPA to drink amongst the hops as they were being harvested.
The label is an explosion of colours as the beer is an explosion of flavour from the New Zealand hops with an aroma of fresh tropical fruit and a hint of green cut grass. The flavourful NZ hops are the hero of this beer with the passionfruit and delicate sweet hint of malt sweetness. The beer is driven by Nelson Sauvin and Riwaka and Kohatu hops grown in NZ.
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.
