Son of Thor IPA

Son of Thor IPA

Posted by Luke Nicholas on

This is the offspring beer from the mighty Thor Imperial IPA Thor was a huge success last year. We got great feedback, but with some saying that at 8.8% was a bit big. So for those people, we have listened and here is a beer slightly less intense but still a powerhouse of hops inspired by Thor. This beer still has the massive dank dry hop character, but the malt, colour and alcohol lighter; Therefore delivering the powerful hop aroma and hop flavour without the weight of the alcohol and body of Thor. Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe are the power couple in this marriage of bright hoppy awesomeness. Sweaty and fruity aroma, light body, sweet fruity flavour, and medium bitter finish. It is an IPA from Epic. Which is probably all we need to say right? You know it is going to deliver a massive attack of hops on your olfactory system.   About the beer: ABV: 6.8% IBU: 50 HOPS: Nelson Sauvin & US Simcoe Launch Event - Lumsden Freehouse, 3 March 2017 Availability: 500ml bottles and keg launching in NZ in early March.
