New Release Day
Rye Porter / Pale Ale #4
Little Bang IPA
For the fourth instalment of our session ale series we've brought back the malt base for Pale Ale Project #1 and tweaked our original hop bill slightly with the edition of Centennial hops alongside the original recipe's Citra and Amarillo. We'd like to call your attention to Exhibit D, which contains further evidence that low ABV need not constitute lack of flavour.
Probably our most to-style beer. We aimed to make a very malt-forward ale utilizing traditional ingredients that would have been used for a bitter. And, in BTP style, we upped the ante with boatloads of East Kent Goldings hops to give off a massive floral, grassy and citrusy aroma, followed by an amazingly balanced flavour, plus a big hop-forward finish with lots of sweet malt.
We brewed Ball Dropper last year for New Years. Be it your last drink of 2015 or your first drink of 2016, this beer will stick with you. We use big, juicy Nelson Sauvain and Motueka hops and although the malt appears to play second fiddle in this hop focused beer, it does manage to provide the structure and balance necessary in a great IPA
Bridgehead cold steeped Nicaraguan coffee stout. A rich dark chocolate and coffee nose with a balance of sweetness.
Zoot Suit is an IPA like no other: it needs to be tasted to be understood. Sure, there is a cornucopia sweet characteristics and a hoppy bitterness. Sure the nose is mind-blowingly complex and fun and begs you to drink it.
The start of what will be an ongoing experiment with fun and hops. This second batch is done with Canadian barley, malt, and just enough British crystal malt to give us a perfect base for the Chinook and Centennial hops.
Aromatherapy IPA is our new release for this week. At 6.5% and 55 IBUs this Vermont inspired IPA explodes with aromas of lemons, stone fruit, and pine. The flavour is juicy and fruity (think peach, mango, lime, orange) with a nice pine spiciness. The malt backbone and body are smooth, for increased drinkability. The moderate bitterness is designed to increase the aromas and flavour of the hops. Enjoy this beer fresh!
A malt forward beer to satisfy the nutritional diet of many Scot's. Dark fruit and subtle roast dominate the aroma accompanied by a smooth body and balanced bitterness with just a hint of peat malt. A sessionable beer to be consumed with company by the quantity.
Number three in our series to conquer the Pale Ale! This time showcasing Nelson Sauvin hops. This beer has fruity citrus notes accompanied by grassy herbal undertones. A light malt backbone and soft bitterness showcases the aroma of Nelson hops. A to style fruity sessional pale ale.
Paying tribute to tradition with a fresh twist of innovation is the governing role of the western brewing world. As such, we have declared rye a perfect suitor to the creamy semi-sweet character of this Porter, offering its silken mouthfeel along with a hint of rye's rugged spice. This seductively smooth dark ale may have you straying from the beaten path but a bounty this sweet is surely justified. Miscreants, you have been warned.
When grappling with the forces of the universe it can be challenging to keep a clear focus under the influence of it's most potent concoctions. It is for this reason that we have given Big Bang a younger sibling, or dare we say, a Little Dipper. Little Bang brings a more gentle resinous explosion and a lighter celestial body than its cosmic twin.
Don’t fear dark beer! Darkness’ imperial version loads up on rich, chocolate and robust, roasted coffee, packing a warming caress of sweet alcohol on the finish. Our hopping choices and schedule allow this brew to be big on hops and even bigger on flavour!
Grapefruit zest and pulp are used to insert the character of the fruit into the beer, and hops are carefully selected to emphasize the citrus notes. Don’t expect this to taste like the first course of Sunday breakfast; the fruit flavour is subtle, and the bitter quality of the grapefruit is balanced by a bit of sweetness in the finish.
Rye Guy is a West Coast style IPA that uses a ton of rye malt as part of the all-Canadian grain bill. American hops give it distinctive citrus and pine notes. The result is a crisp, full-bodied beer that is surprisingly sessionable for 52 IBUs.
Think you've tasted a robust stout? Think again. The Darkness is an incredibly dark and creamy beer that will overwhelm the palate with loads of dark chocolate and coffee flavours.
Get ready for a party in your mouth as Belgian Tripel meets west coast style IIPA. Big tropical hop aroma and flavour is backed up by 9% of malty awesome. And there's just enough spice from the belgian yeast to know that something funky is going on! It's so tasty that at 9.0% ABV people from all walks of life can tap into their inner party animal.
The granddaddy of our Rye Guy IPA. More grain! More hops! The result is an incredibly flavourful yet balanced Imperial IPA. A big malt flavour up front presents in the form of rich caramel and serves to balance the high bitterness of a beer weighing in at 90 IBUs. The result is a nice, lingering, spicy taste on the tongue that is sure to make you feel super.
