A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – North End – Beach Hoist

The case of North End beers, something from all parts of the spectrum, Sours, Saison, Pales to Stouts a purchase from BeerHug in NZ . Super fast service and super nice people.

North End Beach Hoist American IPA has an ABV of 6.5% and an 65 IBU things, and is course an IPA.

North End Brewing are based at Waikanae Beach Wellington 🇳🇿 New Zealand.

An IPA, seems a fairly safe bet at the end of the week.

Sharp burst of hoppyness as you open it, once again a can full to the max.

Lovely range golden pour with a head that would have liked to have stayed full but settles itself into a thinness of white.

The aroma carries a lot of malt sweetness.

An that’s what you get to taste, a lovely malty rich beer with a shuffle of bitterness that wafts in behind and muddles about a bit before settling into quite nice, more towards dry, finish and lingering bitterness

It’s quite compelling and really nice, a big enough beer that you’re getting a bit of a treat and something special and not overly full of itself that you’re wondering what happened.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. A properly aligned beer to bring to an end a week that has its moments. There’s a lot to keep you engaged and enjoying this without it being naggy or wanty on your time. A really nice bit of beer.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.

Our American style India Pale Ale started out as a collaboration with a legendary brewer from Oregon in the North West United States. We took the American IPA style and substituted American varieties of hops for New Zealand grown ones. We have tweaked the recipe and made it our own. The result is fruity, and resinous with a smooth malt backbone and a lingering bitter finish.

Brewers Notes


The India Pale Ale (IPA) is used to describe a hop-forward, bitter, dryish beer. None of these beers ever historically went to India, and many aren’t pale.The standard version generally stands for the American IPA and range between 5.0-7.0 ABV. The American IPA is a decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American ale, showcasing modern American or New World hop varieties. The balance is hop-forward, with a clean fermentation profile, dryish finish, and clean, supporting malt allowing a creative range of hop character to shine through. The “East Coast IPA” is more balanced, offering a malt sweetness with citrus and fruity hop character with a nice little hop bitterness, more reminiscent to traditional english IPAs. In the case of the “West Coast IPA”, bitterness is the at the frontline and pushes malty sweetness to the very back. Stronger and more highly hopped than an American Pale Ale. Compared to an English IPA, has less of the English character from malt, hops, and yeast, less body, and often has a more hoppy balance and is slightly stronger than most examples. Less alcohol than a Double IPA, but with a similar balance. Color ranges from medium gold to light reddish-amber although many substyles exist, each having their own color tone. These other IPA substyles generally are closer-related to their base IPA substyle and should be listed with them, if the substyle is listed.
