We’ve gone for a full on tropical explosion employing a superstar three way lineup of the freshest El Dorado, Simcoe and Mosaic. This beer is positively bursting with a metric tonne of pineapple, stone fruit, watermelon, mango and just a hint of bubblegum sweetness to boot. Offset by a smaller than usual addition of both El Dorado and Mosaic in the whirlpool at 2 and 5kg respectively, this beer maintains a whisper of bitterness to keep everything in check and balanced.

We wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck. Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of hop additions during the whirlpool and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly 'easy' IPA.

The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
