Hop Federation Rakau IPA (500ml Bottle)
Our entry in Nelson’s Marchfest 2014, this varietal IPA features a relatively new local hop, Rakau. Its delicate nose and tropical-fruit flavours combine elegantly with Gladfield malts from Canterbury in a refreshing, apricot-coloured beer with a rounded, bittersweet finish
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.
