Lovibonds Fresh Hop IPA


Brewed by Lovibonds
Henley-on-Thames, England
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.3%
Fresh Hop IPA Tapped by Pete Brown, the first keg of this year’s Fresh Hop IPA. We fired up the pilot brew plant using 7.5kg of fresh hop cones throughout the process. They went in the mash, they went in the kettle and then the mash tun was cleared out and turned into a giant hop back! Fresh Hop IPA is only available in our shop to Growler customers and those having a pint in our beer garden. Check it out while it lasts. (A big thanks to all of you that donated your time and hops to brew this special harvest beer. You can check out some of the pictures on facebook)
