Two Hemispheres IPA brings together Australian Galaxy hops and American Citra "fresh hops" in a beer that has our brewery team very excited and very thirsty. This amber-orange beer aims an intense hop-derived fruit aroma straight at both nostrils with Galaxy providing citrus and passionfruit and Citra bring even more orange/citrus plus pineapple, guava, mango. The 150 pounds of freshly picked, never dried, Citra hops were added after fermentation completed in a "wet-hop" process that brings out the most delicate volatile hop aromas along with fresh herbal notes. The flavor is hop balanced with sharp hop bitterness balancing the hop fruit and juicy British malt character. For all the fruity hop excesses, the finish is dry and complexly herbal, with one sip demanding another. This beer will be available for a very limited time.

Tap at Mad Fox. Pours a low haze straw. Creamy head. Webby lace. Nose is fresh biscuit and papaya. Soft yellow, nectar fruits. Taste is piney and bitter with starfruit, oily, juicy nectarine. Sharply bitter in backend with a very soft, quenching mouthfeel. Very sharply hoppy and grassy. Beautiful passionfruit throughout. Very good. A bit more complete than the Dingo IPA but very similar, both were awesome.
