My first ever homebrew from Europe! This beer was hand-delievered to me by Peter "The Master of Hoppets" http://youtube.com/TheMasterOfHoppets It was also brewed by his friend Jakob "The Lord of Malts." Apparently they wanted to make a New Zealand-insprired double IPA. Although there's plenty of American west coast influence to be found in this beer, too.
Its a DIPA on 9,6% ABV only brewed with New Zealand hops, the malts used is American Two Row Pale, Marris Otter. The hops used are Pacific Gem (for bittering), Nelson Sauvin (a small amount for bittering), Rakau and Motueka. It was also brewed with oats and honey.
