Epic vs Tiny Rebel Rebel Yell IPA (330ml Can)
Rebel Yell is a collaboration between Epic and Tiny Rebel from the UK.
We got together, and discussed all the beer styles, hop varieties and things we love about beer, and the beer we make. It was incredible, we were like brothers from another mother. Love IPA's, love Mosaic and love Citra hops. So we had to take a different approach. It was finding a way to capture something else that makes us unique working together. Tiny Rebel is from Wales and so are Luke's ancestors. Luke's great grandfather came to NZ after World War I and settled. So with the UK historical connection it was decided that making the beer a bit more malty (compared to todays ultra pale IPA's) would be a nice nod to the past and English style beers.
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.
