Our tenth birthday present to ourselves was a beautiful new brewery. To celebrate, we invited six legendary breweries from the UK craft beer scene to help us put it through its paces. The party comes in the form of the resulting Birthday Beers series.
When we think of Verdant we think of uncompromisingly flavourful hazy beers, and so, naturally, we opted for a juicy ol’ IPA for this collaboration.
Hefty whirlpool additions of Moteuka and Sabro hops bring notes of lime, coconut and pineapple. Then, inspired by the maestros from Falmouth we dry hopped twice at carefully selected lower temperatures. Citra, El Dorado and Motueka at 13 degrees bring hints of zesty citrus, white wine, pineapple and lemon freshness, whilst Galaxy at 4 degrees brings floral notes of passionfruit. Soft, full and deliciously satisfying, this is an IPA with serious clout.
