Southeast Double IPA
North American 2-row, Vienna
Nelson Sauvin, Motueka
17 plato (1.070)
2.5 plato (1.009)
Triple hopped and brewed with over 6lbs of hops per BBL of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin and Motueka.
Like a tropical fruit salad, an explosion of sweet mango, juicy passionfruit, papaya, lychee, gooseberry, and ruby red spring forth. The perfect beer with which to welcome the start of tropical fruit season.
There’s something special about New Zealand, and her hops.
Although New Zealand accounts for a relatively small portion of the world’s hop acreage, the quality and range of what is grown there is breathtaking. The New Zealand terroir seems to impart hops with some of the most exotic and surprising characteristics imaginable.
Perhaps no hop embodies this notion more than Nelson Sauvin, the star of our show here. It is so named for its one-of-a-kind profile of gooseberry and passionfruit, reminiscent of New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc wines.
Paired with Nelson Sauvin is another New Zealander: Motueka. A more subtle hop with an old world pedigree, but featuring a tropical-lime twist.
Combined, these two hops bring loads of tropical fruit and citrus character to the table.
