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!

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.

Harry Masters Jersey is a powerful and characterful bittersweet variety. The 2021 harvest seemed to be the best Harry Masters we had ever seen and it is really exciting to have a HMJ cider that is tasting so smooth and so full even when it is this young. This cider was blended at pressing with around 25% Bramley apple, which brings a crisp, green acidity to the blend. The combined flavour is fruit-forward, with twisting acidity leading into the beautiful, gentle tannins of uber-ripe Harry Masters Jersey. A very drinkable cider.
