For the sixth beer in this series of juicy IPAs, we’ve teamed up with our friends out in Gothenburg, Stigbergets, and our new friends (from much further afield), Hop Revolution - a hop farm in New Zealand. We were lucky enough to get our hands on their 2020 harvest. Stigbergets’ flagship ‘New & Improved’ IPA heavily showcases Nelson Sauvin, so we decided to blend our favourite elements of this beer with our own ‘Heathen’ NEIPA. We doubled the dry hop and created a juice bomb. The base heavily features malted and flaked oats, plus a portion of malted wheat, for that classic, silky-smooth, thick and creamy New England base. Using the unique chardonnay grape and gooseberry flavours of Nelson Sauvin as our lead hop, we backed up with Mosaic and Citra, the other common varieties between our two recipes, bringing the total dry hop rate to 24g/l. This brings layers of ripe tropical fruit to complement the citrus and peach overtones of our house yeast, underpinning the NZ hop aromas.
