Big Shed Indie IPA ft HPA-016

Style
Single Hop IPA
ABV
6.4%
Bitterness
35 IBU

In 2019, Big Shed released their first Indie IPA featuring a then experimental hop coming out of NZ called HORT 4337, now officially titles Nectaron and in regular production. A year on, and with a launch on Indie Beer Day, Big Shed released Indie IPA again, this time utilising experimental Aussie hop HPA-016 [Set to be officially named later this year – Editor].

The 2020 version pours slightly lighter than the original, holding a clear, deep gold appearance. Fleshy, juicy peaches initially gain attention on the nose, alongside some decent pine aromas and a touch of lychee and orange peel. The pine comes through more prominently on the first sip, alongside some spice and orange citrus. The bitterness is balanced, melding nicely with the slightly sweet crystal malt flavours that come through late on.
