// BACH // NZ IPA – 6.5%ABV
Pronounced ‘Batch’ – Our latest IPA creation comes off the back of brewer Chris’s recent trip to a small coastal town called Whangamata where he was stayed in a tiny beach shack …AKA – a batch 🏝.
As brewers and keen beer enthusiasts, one of the most enjoyable things to do on holidays is to try the local produce. In the case of New Zealand it’s always really exciting and intriguing as their variety of hops are completely unique. Common flavours and aromas that you’ll find are blackberry, gooseberry, honey-dew and even a white grape or white wine like character.
Bach is no exception to these traits with a big hit of blackberry and ribeena on the nose & hints of strawberries and cream hiding amongst the underlying grassy pine. Copper in colour with a subtle malt profile. It has a creamy summer berry flavour balanced with a herbaceous bitterness. The subtle malt profile lends to sessionability like no other. Be sure to don your jandals befor cracking one of these.
Double dry hopped with over 30kg of kiwi hops including Motueka and Riwaka with a bit of old faithful Mosaic thrown in!
