Epic Heavy Hop (500ml Bottle)

Epic Heavy Hop 500ml Bottle

Description

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Malthouse in Wellington we have made this special Scottish influenced beer. A bit of hat tip to the heart of, courageous leader and our good friend Colin Mallon.
What makes it Scottish? - we have used a special Scottish Ale yeast which is believed to have come from the historic McEwan's Brewery in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh. The reason we used this was to trial the yeast in an Epic IPA, and to also grow up enough yeast for our 13th Anniversary beer. The yeast has a high alcohol tolerance which we needed. The yeast produces a neutral and clean malt base, which is ideal for showcasing the hops. The name Heavy Hop is a play on the Scottish beer style of Wee Heavy. The beer isn’t excessively heavy for an Epic beer but compared to a Scottish Wee Heavy, it definitely is

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.
