NEW ENGLAND IPA
Big juicy hops and a smooth malt body are the signatures of this bold New England style IPA. The Rainmaker loads up on Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy for a hop bomb of bright mango, citrus and tropical fruit. Relatively low hop bitterness and creamy oats in the malt bill combine beautifully to make this one seriously drinkable IPA.
Originally conceived as a special release The Rainmaker has quickly established itself amongst their most sought after beers and is now part of their Core range.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Extra Pale, Flaked Oats, Marris Otter
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Cascade, Citra, El Dorado, Galaxy, Mosaic, Simcoe
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
