Stone Hammer Strikes Again!
Yes, the IPA in of the series of beers with the same name is coming back! For those of you who have forgotten, or whose memory of it has been drowned in a sea of subsequent freaking awesome Epic beers, this may jot your memory: In the spirit of an Epic beer, this IPA is seriously hop forward. Some say like a punch in the face. Its big and its aggressive, but in a “could I have another one kind” of way. Your tongue will be slayed by the massive attack of Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops creates an incredible aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. The intense juicy hop oils envelop your palate with grapefruit and passionfruit flavours. The body has a sweet malt character that drives the hop flavours and subsides to a zinging hop bitterness. Or as our mate Neil Miller put it so eloquently at it's launch at the GKBF in 2016: More about the beer: ABV: 7.0% IBU: 60 EBC (SRM): 15 (Re) Launch: The Lumsden Freehouse, 3 March 2017 We'll keep you updated here heading into the wilds of NZ on 1 March.
