Fresh off the back of Tiny Rebel’s champion beer of Britain win with red ale Cwtch we were happy to host Gareth for a cheeky collab brew. The mind boggles at what head brewers Matt and Gareth could create and the resulting brew doesn’t disappoint.
White IPA is the ultimate collaboration of beer styles – a spiced wheat beer meets an IPA. It’s brewed with 40% wheat, low colour Maris Otter, oats, coriander, Seville orange peel and dry hopped with a mixture of New Zealand and USA hops.
“We used a new hop from America called ‘Jarrylo’ for bittering the beer which has laid base flavours of banana, pear, orange and spice” said Matt, “the mash up of the two styles means you get to enjoy the best of both beer styles”.
At 6% White IPA is well balanced, bringing you huge tropical fruits to the nose, low bitterness from the hops and a light spicing from the coriander. It finishes with a lovely big mouthfeel from the wheat and oats. A collaboration which has resulted in one sensory overloaded beer!
Launching at The Beer Hall (in cask & keg) on Friday 9th October and at Manchester festival Indy Man Beer Con.
