North/ Parrotdog NZ DIPA

by North Brewing Co


Country: UK | Style: Double India Pale Ale | Size: 440ml | %ABV: 8 

Last year we brewed a NZIPA with our friends from New Zealand, Parrotdog Brewery. They brought with them in their suitcases 20kg of a new experimental hop from called HORT 4337. We all felt a little like the Pablo Escobars of the brewing world. We threw the hops into the tank and ended up making a beer that gained a lot of love at the brewery. Fast forward a year later and HORT 4337 has been legalised, named 'Nectaron' and is widely available to the masses! We've managed to pick some up this year and reached out to Parrotdog to see if they would be up for revisiting the recipe and making some changes.

We've doubled down on the original brew to bring you an NZDIPA. 8% in abv and featuring a big big dose of Nectaron bringing rich and intense passionfruit and peach flavour. Citra and El Dorado back the beer up with smooth fleshy pear, succulent pineapple and juicy nectarine.
