Originally coming out of Burleigh HQ, the South Coast IPA is an Australian/NZ style IPA, featuring a punchy paw paw and mango aroma thanks to the generous hop additions of Nelson Sauvin, Vic Secret, Taiheke & Waimea. Lighter in colour than its U.S. counterpart the North Coast IPA, South Coast comes in at a well hidden 6.8% and is rounded out with a crisp, uniquely dry finish
Black Hops Brewing is 3 mates making craft beer and sharing everything they learn along the way. After discussing a concept over beer at the pub, Dan, Eddie and Govs set off to make their first beer, the Eggnog Stout. Once the pilot brew batch was out, their attention quickly turned to doing a proper commercial brew.
They opened the doors to their own brewery and taproom in Burleigh Heads in June 2016.
