Renaissance Enlightenment USA vs NZ India Pale Ale (500ml Bottle)

Renaissance Enlightenment USA vs NZ India Pale Ale 500ml Bottle

Description

Here at Renaissance we art terroirists and we are encouraging terroirism in New Zealand. Come with us on this journey.

Terroir can be very loosely translated as "a sense of place," which is embodied in certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the production of the product. (Wikipedia)

We have made a pair of IPAs with classic American hops Chinook, Willamette, and Cascade.
The recipes are identical except for the growing region of the hops USA or NZ.

Now we let the terroir shine through.
Both beers have a golden–orange hue, a light malt sweetness blending with soft hop bitterness and American hop notes of citrus and soft fruits, but which is the better beer?
Well, that’s just obvious!
Enjoy

Tasting Notes

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.
