Sunshine Sunrise Project Pale Face Ale (500ml Bottle)
This is our take on what has become the craft beer standard, an all New Zealand hop India Pale Ale. Using our great Gisborne water and a malting regime to develop a good stiff backbone we have added a nine stage hopping regime for a layered and complex hop hit, without losing balance and drinkability through excessive alcohol and bitterness. The palate is smooth and creamy with a good lashing of peppery hop character to give a clean and long finish. Probably longer then the beer lasts inside your glass, because this pale ale is hard to drink slowly.
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.
