Only in the last 200 or so years, hops have become synonymous with beer, first as a preservative and later as flavour enhancer. With time, the term ‘ale’ was repurposed to describe a variety of beer full of hops, a real beer for the real beer arbiter. In designing this recipe the brewers had in mind a ‘sessionable’ Pale Ale. A semi chewy mix of ale, pilsner and crystal malt provides our Boulder with a smooth malty backbone to balance the late addition hops of Cascade, Pacifica and Motueka. This flagrant ale delivers with broad citrus & passion fruit notes resulting in a big and ballsy drop.
