PROPER DIPA: SABRO
Using a yeast that’s thousands of generations old, Cloudwater are thrilled to be updating their popular early DIPA recipes with a fresh take.
This time they’ve used the distinctive and bold hop Sabro from the States, which has massive flavours of coconut, creamy vanilla, sweet lime and tropical fruits balanced with a resinous finish.
A jammy triple fruited sour ale brewed with blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.
An initial jammy sweetness saturates the senses, as though biting into a juicy berry picked during peak season. Gentle acidity rounds out the taste, adding brightness to the beer, which further accentuates the jammy fruit character and brings forth the biscuity malt body.
Turning Point's completely un-Christmassy, Christmas beer is here!
A decadent, well-hopped porter, with notes of chocolate, roasty malt, and a gentle fruity finish. Perfect for fireside Christmas drinking, but also able to follow the Reinheitsgebot...
Two Flints are thrilled to share with you their third biiig DIPA, Bella. This time they’ve gone for Nelson Sauvin and Motukea, plus a complex and innovative underpinning of hop products including a Hop Unlock thiolised yeast, Freestyle Super Sauvin (Nelson Sauvin with Phantasm powder) and Nelson Sauvin Hop Kief. They've played around with water and grist leaving a super soft, fluffy and drinkable DIPA. We're getting huge aromas of grape, Jolly Ranchers, strawberry laces, gooseberry and overripe mango.
This soft and luscious hazy pale is straw blonde in colour and packed with Citra and a touch of Azacca. We’re getting peach rings, pineapple chunks and a hint of dankness to balance the intense tropical fruit. Imagine yourself aimlessly floating around on a Lilo in still, serene tropical waters, with a can in hand. Bliss.
Clapton Craft have backed Two Flints since day one, so they were buzzing to get them down for a brew day and create a punchy west coast pale inspired by their iconic bear logo. Grizzly has a backbone of Pilsner malt combined with a touch of Vienna for perceived sweetness to give this easy drinker a solid base for the hops to shine. A lethal combo of Simcoe and Rakau provide fresh pineapple, apricot and zingy passion fruit whilst a small Chinook dry hop addition adds a touch of pine. An assertive but smooth bitterness, Grizzly is one to sink your claws into.

HE CAN PLAY THE HONKY TONK LIKE ANYTHING
Check out my fruit gose. It’s got all the fruits. Guava...
Why do you consider Sabro your enemy? It stabbed you in your back with creamy coconut, and complex citrus and tropical notes? And that hint of mint? Well Citra Cryo and a huge dose of Vic Secret take the lead here, and Sabro adds all of that flavour with delicate precision, balancing out the whole affair beautifully. Not on board? I don’t care. Why should I? Nobody else does.
Guaranteed not to make you feel like a fortnight in a bad balloon or like a piano dentist, and you certainly won’t end up in a quack candle. It’s not a dog, it’s a drink. Cat? No drink. Citra, Strata and Mosaic double dry hopped pale.
Fill up your dance card and take a turn around the floor with Simcoe & Idaho-7. Yes sir, they CAN boogie!
