In a ‘Double’ IPA a bigger pale malt base makes the beer significantly stronger, as you’d expect. But it’s all about providing a foundation, rather than balance; all the better to show off enormous quantities of massively aromatic New Zealand grown Riwaka and Australian Vic Secret hops. The combination is full of intensely juicy tropical and citrus flavours — and this beer lets them shine, lets them sing.
Kōwhai’s distinctively lush yellow blooms (so striking that they make the plant synonymous with the colour in Te Reo) are our de facto national flower, and their nectar is a perennial favourite of Tui and Kererū.
