Neck Oil

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.

When we found our we'd be getting a shedload of Loral into the brewery as part of our hop contract this year, it made the most sense to pair up the super high pineapple sweetness of this new-to-the-brewery varietal with one of the in-house favourites, Simcoe. The result is an IPA with the high juice characteristics we've become so accustomed to, backed up with enough complexity to maintain maximum drinkability.
