Fresh IPA, a rolling, ever changing, monthly series of one offs, brewed in small batches and available only from our brewery outlets and only while stocks last. Each batch is an opportunity to try a new brewery fresh IPA, unfiltered and unfined, showcasing a unique combination of yeast, malt and hops. Just fun, fresh hoppy beer at its best.

“Autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.” - It’s also the season of haze, and juicy fruitiness. I don’t believe in playing favourites, but May will give any other month a run for its money.
Lush in body, lush in texture, with a clean lager-malt sweetness, and just a touch of Citra in the whirlpool; the real action is in the dry hop, with Eclipse, Mosaic and Motueka making a bold citrus, pineapple, and stonefruit statement. This is a pretty beer to look at; a glowing 24k gold, with the faintest hint of hop cone green, pouring a striking dense, tight white foam which blooms even after it’s in the glass, lingering and lacing its way down as you drink. Sweet pineapple, mango and tangerine greet the nose. The first sip a roller coaster of lemon and lime skittles, juicy grapefruit, punchy passionfruit, peach - and sweet mandarin. Beautiful bitter-sweet balance and drinkability, with a fantastic fresh citrus candy finish make May a tough act to follow.
Yours in hops,
