Created as another twist to the tail of the American pale ale the Amber ale takes all the hop attitude of the pale ale and adds another dimension with added malt character.  Originating in the Pacific North west this is a fairly recent style that is finding favour with beer aficionados is now enjoyed all over the United states.

Don’t be fooled by its name this may be an amber beer but we’ve packed it full of hops from two parts of the globe! Pacific Jade from New Zealand, Cluster and Summit from the United States. These hops are characterised by their hard hitting spicy and pink grapefruit flavour, giving a superb aroma working beautifully with the amount of malt we’ve been able to pack into this beer. Our Specialised Dark ale yeast strain also helps to lift this beer from the ordinary accentuating both the malt complexity and the hop character. 

Our beer pours a fantastic amber hue with a rocky off white head, hop character oozes from the glass giving you a heady mix of spicy black currants, pine sap and grapefruit.

On the palate this beer shows its mettle effortlessly melding the juicy caramel and toffee malt characters that belie its strength with a fantastic and complex hop flavour that actually leans towards juicy pine sap balanced with a good bitterness but not over bearing.

Look:

Pours light brown, fluffy white head.

Aroma:

Soft rounded aroma, subtle foral and slightly spicy.

Flavour:

Perfect soft malt character with a rounded mouth feel, enchanced and held together with a floral hop character with pungent tones of pine resin, and subtle earthy undertones

These days American IPA’s are brewed to be drunk fresh and use obscene amounts of fragrant American hops that give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character. We’ve used three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook. Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops, beautiful and fragrant they exude grapefruit and floral character, the Simcoe tempers this fruit character with its more savoury pine resin
character.  With our US West Coast ale yeast strain sourced from an American craft brewery giving such a clean fermentation profile these hops shine through explosively giving you a fantastic IPA to brew at home that will rival the world’s best!

Our IPA pours like a true IPA, pale gold with a fluffy white head, the aroma of this beer hits you immediately, intense pine and grapefruit character a side of tropical fruit salad.

On the palate this beer has just enough malt to hold the crazy amounts of hops we’ve put in it giving you a riot of flavours tending toward the pine resin from the Simcoe, bitterness is full on refreshing the palate and inviting another sip.

Look:

Pours pale gold, fluffy white head.

Aroma:

Wonderful aroma of tripical and citrus fruits, a fantastic comination of fresh fruit, mango and grapefruit.

Flavour:

Great balance between malt and hops, very fruity with great overtones of pine needles, with slight herbal character with a full and lingering dry bitter flavour.

California is widely considered the birthplace of the American Craft Pale, breweries in California use judicious amounts of American hops to create a taste sensation! These hops along with a clean yeast character are the building blocks to creating fantastic American Pale Ale.

We’ve created our own American Pale Ale by combining the very best ingredients we can source, beautiful malt that has lovely caramel and biscuit tones to support two powerhouse American hops, Columbus and Centennial giving the beer tremendous Citrus, floral and pine character both in the aroma and also the flavour, these coupled with our US West Coast ale yeast strain that’s sourced from an American Craft brewery means that your finished beer will be crisp and clean with an amazingly expressive malt and hop character exactly how it should!

Our APA pours a light copper with a fluffy white head; initial caramel and biscuit aromas give way to a heavy floral and citrus note inviting a sip. 

On the palate the malt character again balances the grapefruit and pine character nicely from the Centennial and Columbus adding complexity and flavour, a balanced bitter finish makes this the perfect session beer.

Look:

Pours bright copper, with an off white head.

Aroma:

Begins with sweet caramel and light malt aromas, which flooded with punchy ripe nectarines and subtle tones of strawberry jam.

Flavour:

Beautiful sweet malty flavours backed up with a vibrant hop character, bursting with intense and juicy nectarines, perfectly balanced, light and very refreshing.
