As we head towards the longer nights and hopefully better weather we have brewed a couple of session pale ales perfect for the sunny weather. First up is Cascade Pale 3.9% brewed with the classic American hop Cascade; the hops give citrus and floral flavours which lead to a dry crisp refreshing finish. Secondly we have managed to get our hands on some Nelson Sauvin Hops for the first time in around three years. With these the first beer to come out of the brewery will be Nelson Pale 3.6%, this New Zealand hop gives bags of grapefruit flavours and sure is not to lack in taste even at this beer’s low ABV.
For those who like beer a little stronger we are brewing NZ IPA 6.0% again but this time with a different concoction of hops. This version will bring together: Pacific Jade, Motueka, Waimea and Rakau to give a sharp citrus flavour with pine like notes. Along with this we are going a bit mad with hops from New Zealand so June’s single hopped IPA will be Rakau IPA 5.0%.
Also look out for American 5 Hop Version 21 4.3%, which at the time of writing this was being brewed and set to include Columbus, Sorachi Ace, Comet and two other US hops. Also in the pipeline is the next in the Geek series using all Mosaic hops and a German hopped pale combining Magnum, Huell Melon and Manadriana Bavaria.
