Straight to the pool room

This beer is our 2019 entry into the annual Malthouse west coast IPA challenge. In keeping with tradition our brewers have named it “straight to the pool room”.

It’s an un-compromising beauty of a beer. A bouquet of our favourite hops have been used to craft a beautifully balanced beer with the intense citrus and pine aroma that should be expected in a west coast style IPA.

The taste is resinous, mouth coating and grippingly bitter. The alcohol brings a warming sweetness to the palate with a malt biscuit flavour. Every sip should be savored.

With only one batch brewed, squealers are in limited supply. 

At 7.8% this West Coast IPA looks light amber with a slight haze, and has aromas of mango, citrus, and pine. On the palate it’s resinous, grippingly bitter, and has an alcoholic sweetness.

Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Columbus, Citra, Simcoe, Motueka, Pacific Jade
Malt: American Ale, Munich, Carapils, Light Crystal
