COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We believe HopWired is the first bottled version of a true new world India Pale Ale made with NZ grown base malt and 100% truly unique NZ hops. We bet you’ll find nothing else like it on the shelves. Although the malty sweetness is there, this beer is all about the hops. Unlike an American I.P.A. which will mainly hit you with a grapefruity-citrus flavour and aroma, the unique NZ hops used in HopWired are more like a tropical punchbowl: Passion fruit, lime, oranges and Sauvignon Blanc to name but a few. A local Marlborough winemaker said it smelled like gooseberries... Gooseberries? Who has ever smelled a gooseberry?? Decide for yourself or just enjoy it without further complications. Cheers!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 Tap at the Albion Newcastle. Wow this was even better than in a bottle. Fantastic IPA, huge hoppy flavour that is exquisitely balanced.

One of the all time best IPA’s I’ve evre sipped. Pours a beautiful golden color with a lingering frothy head. Smells of bright, crisp and very fresh hop spice. Full nectar with excellent carbonation. Supreme hop essence balanced by a fat malt component. This brew just goes down so good and lingers on the tongue forever. Highest recommendation.

0.5l bottle at the Salt House, Galway, Ireland. Amber Colour, tropical fruits aroma, full body with rich, oily sensation in the mouth. And it is all about those unusual NZ hops, still balanced very well with the malt used. Probably the best beer in the world. :)

this is one beautiful IPA. I tasted it for the first time tonight, and it’s one of the most surprising beers i’ve tasted. surprisingly great. I got notes of mandarin in the palate. but it’s a lovely bright taste while holding a rich fullness of the hops. I’m definately going to try it again soon
