Just like you, but different
Long names, Long records, Long division and Long rambles.
Single hopped with Pacific Jade late in the boil, the Solo Lupulus Metamorphic showcases this hop and is very drinkable!
I had an email from the brewery person about some new beers, so I went out, and I got a couple,as you do.
Formed from the pressure between colliding tectonic plates, Jade is a metamorphic rock with a beautiful green colour.
In New Zealand we grow beautiful green Pacific Jade on hop vines, plenty of which are crammed into this IPA.
As ornate as it is, we wouldn’t advise you to wear it on a necklace.
Rather rich malty aroma on opening, that’s like a good old fashioned English beer.
Great golden orange pour with a matching off white almost orange head, nice carbonation and looks great in the glass. Really sweet aroma almost like sugar syrup, it masks the hop aroma somewhat.
This is much less hoppy than some IPA’s that I’ve had and it doesn’t rely on that sharp grassy bitterness to carry it to the detriment of other flavours, this one appears to lead with the flavours and adds the hop bite in to round it out.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 a of its things from the thing, it’s a bit of a work of art and ideal for sitting the sun on a lazy afternoon. Choice.
The double dip review
The in-band are “The Vaselines“, this is “High Tide Low Tide” from their new album “V For Vaselines”
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
