HALIFAX, NS – The latest in a series of beers created by Rockbottom Brewpub brewmater Greg Nash in collaboration with members of the BrewNosers homebrew club is set to be tapped today (May 4, 2012) at Rockbottom.
Dubbed The Ultimate White IPA in honour of the Halifax Ultimate Frisbee League, the beer was co-created by Nash and homebrewer Rob Douglass, and is described as follows:
Our latest Brewnoser collaboration brew is a hybrid of sorts; West Coast IPA meets Belgian-style Witbier. Brewed with malted barley, wheat, oats, coriander, orange and plenty of hops: bright and fresh with hop forward citrus notes, coriander and orange cut through making their presence known. Finishes silky and crisp with a lingering bitterness. Refreshing hybrid deliciousness for your glass
The Ultimate White IPA will be available on tap at the Rockbottom Brewpub while supplies last.
The first in a series of beers brewed in honour of legendary NHL goaltenders, China Wall is named after the nickname of Johnny Bower, and proceeds will benefit the NHL Alumni Association. A great inspiration, a great cause… and thankfully, a great beer to back them up. Pouring a dark and clear reddish amber with a thick tan cap, it has aromas and flavours of caramel, toasted nuts, a bit of brown sugar, roasted barley cereal, and a wisp of cocoa. Sweet up front and in the middle of the palate, it dries nicely in the finish with grassy and moderately bitter hops, and a hint of toasted hazelnut. Here’s hoping the upcoming installments in the series offer beer of a similar quality.
