Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - IP-May

Yes, you guessed it. We went bonkers and made a whole mixed case full of IPA's! Why; well because IPA's are fantastic. Also because IPA's are often considered to be the bench mark of a craft brewers skill mixed with level of adventurousness. We have attempted a tasting order, but to be honest these are all big and should be taken with a mix of joy and caution. Cheers!

Duvel Tripel Hop

5.0 stars from 1 review - Write your review

Duvel Tripel Hop is brewed with three hop varieties and each year the third hop is changed to provide its own unique taste and aroma. For the 2017 vintage, Tripel Hop fans across the world were called to vote on their favourite. The Citra won and is now released as the best Tripel Hop ever for 2017.

  • By using three instead of two hop varieties to brew, additional hop aromas are obtained and an increased bitterness is achieved
  • The typical Duvel palate (using Saaz-saaz and Styrian Golding hops) is enriched with Citra hops providing notes of citrus and tropical fruits
  • Citra hops are added again during dry hopping, extracting additional hop aromas into the beer
  • The higher aromatic intensity rounds out the beer, backing the final alcohol content of 9.5%

Drifter Brewing Co Hoptunia IPA

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Inspired by Oregon, the land of fresh hops, Hoptunia is the freshest an IPA can come. By using 20 kilograms of whole cone wet hops, this beer is more subtle and earthy than the usual bitter IPA. It is filled with autumn citrus fruit notes and a slight pine overtone.

  • Sunshine gold in colour
  • Fresh sweet citrus fruit aroma with zesty peel and subtle pine resin notes
  • Fruity flavour with a hint of toasted malt
  • Blend of SAB wet hops
