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.

Sweet fruity hop nose, almost apple sweet. Hazy deep amber beer with small white head. Light carbonation. Thin easy drinking mouthfeel. Hints of Turkish delight with nice bitterness in the finish. Touch of Melon shines through late on. Not spectacular but nice.

Bit disappointed by this one. Got waft of pine in the glass. Little light in taste but is sweet. Bitter at the end. A bit so-so for mine. 330ml. 4.8%. 1.3std dri. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. My least favourite of the four beer school series beers. Better than the Summer IPA they brewed previous to this, but I suppose I’m just not a huge fan of this hop.
