The New England IPA style is all about maximising the fruity character of the hops. Grain and yeast add layers of flavour that intensify the hops’ fruitiness.
The Brut IPA is about paring back the beer to intensify the flavours of the hops. The beer is bone dry, crisp and light, but with an intense hoppy flavour.
We used Mosaic, Citra and Ekuanot hops in both these IPAs. They can be tasted together and compared or enjoyed on their own. Oh yes, and we packaged them into 440ml cans. The first time we’ve done that.
Both labels were designed by Matt Jeffs, who is a great guy and super talented Bristol based designer. Matt designed the label for Freimann’s Dunkelweiss, one of our first ever labels, back in 2013. We recently caught up with him again at Bristol Craft Beer Festival and were excited to have him work on our first ever cans!
