COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our beer for the inaugural ‘Rainbow IPA challenge 2013’. Made with a pale golden promise malt base, and our house yeast, we then used litre after litre of pure Blueberries in fermentation and dry hopped the beer with berry like Vanguard/Willamette and citrusy Chinook hops. A deep red colour with an inviting off white head, the flavor is full of characteristic blueberry fruit with a crisp and drying berry skin finish. Don’t end up like Violet!
