8 Wired / Fresh Hopwired - 440ml Can
A trailblaxer when first release in 2009. Hopwired was one of the world's first IPA's to be brewed exclusively with NZ hops. In 2012 we decided to mix it up a little by brewing a fresh hop version. So enjoyable to make we decided to turn the creation of this beer into an annual event. Evolving it slightly over the years, we now present to you this green hopped hazy IPA.
The hops were amazing, super fresh, juicy and green. Picked at Clayton Hops just outside of Nelson while we were mashing in and flown up in collaboration with our friends at McLeod's. A day of almost military precision, the hops arrived at the brewery right as the wort was ready for them.
