COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hop IPA, the third in our series, highlights the character of a unique Australian hop variety, Summer. This hop has a slightly lower alpha acid % when compared with our previous IPAs, Galaxy and Stella. To compensate for this, we have increased our hopping regime by 50%. The result is a lush IPA with melon and stone fruit characters and mild bitterness.
