Loophole Timely Juicy IPALoophole Brewing
The third batch in our Timely IPA series sees us explore the deep flavour of a new Aussie hop cultivar, along with some old favourites. HPA 016 was used in the kettle and generously in the whirlpool – it certainly lives up to the hype delivering intense mandarin vibes with a touch of pine, a combo that we aren’t used to seeing in Australian hops.
We followed up with some more of it in the fermenter as well as heaps of Topaz and Galaxy adding dimensions of lychee and passionfruit. As the name suggests, this is a modern, juicy-style of IPA – a restrained bitterness but an absolute kaleidoscope of hop juice flavour ready for you and the sunny weather!
