AUSSIE IPAs TO ENJOY ON IPA DAY
Because we all love the hoppy goodness that is an India Pale Ale, we’ve put together a list of some of our local faves.
Four new world hop varieties (Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo) have gone into this IPA at all stages of the brewing process to lend a big juicy, fruity aroma, robust flavour and firm bitterness. There is a pale malt bill with a few specialty malts for good measure, just enough to carry the seriously large hopping regime! This beer is for people with great taste, who love a modern day classic IPA!
Capital Brewing Rock Hopper IPA
Big and juicy, this west coast IPA was brewed to celebrate the journey to Capital’s favourite remote places. The forward hop flavours are bursting with citrus and stone fruit (peach) flavour and aroma. It’s got a dry finish and subtle malt flavours. It’s as if you’re drinking a refreshing fruit punch.
