Beavertowns every day, all day, easy drinking, go to ipa. This started life as a home-brew.
They wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck.
Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of late hop additions throughout the last 20 minutes of the boil and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly ‘easy’ ipa.
The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
Introducing the newest addition to Beavertowns meticulous lineup of core range offerings, LUPULOID IPA, a 6.7% ABV India Pale Ale. The most notable thing is that it is their first straight up IPA, no funny business, just malt, yeast, water and hops. Lots of hops. I guess it only took them four years!
First came the collaborations. They learned so much valuable information, and are eternally grateful to everybody who came to visit / opened their doors to them. These helped create fantastic brews in order to solidify in their minds exactly WHAT they wanted their IPA to be.
Then they turned it over to us all, and introduced “The Invasion Of The Lupuloids,” as a series of waves of beers accompanied by a list of every technical detail you could want and more – by way of something similar to Top Trumps cards – every thing from yeast strains, through original / final gravity, to total hop oils per 100g listed.
They felt this gave people ample info to make an informed decision, and then they listened. As feedback came in they tweaked recipes and plotted new brews, releasing another wave with the same info available, and then repeated the process. The end result was 10 IPAs, that were tweaked and adapted with the feedback received until they were able to bring you the LUPULOID.
And now they can finally release it unto the world!
