Deep Creek / Lupulin Effect Wunderbier 7% - 440ml Can
Lupulin Effect is the name Deep Creek give to their family experimental IPA's which are released each month. By our count there have been over a dozen so far and we've seen a gin & lime DIPA, a fresh-hopped Nelson Sauvin IPA, a bourbon & citrus IPA and the legendary Hoppy McHopface - a DIPA made with hop oil. Germany is not known for IPAs but it is known for hops with hop gardens having been cultivated for brewing for around a thousand years. Today Germany has more hop growing acres than any other country and is at the cutting edge of hop development. The Hop Research Center in Hüll, Bavaria has been doing just that for over 90 years. The three hops used in Wunderbier were released in 2012 as Germany keeps up with the current taste for the bold, aromatic varieties emerging from New World growers. Mandarina is very citrusy with distinct tangerine flavours, Hüll Melon has a strawberry and honeydew aroma while Hallertau Blanc is floral and fruity with passionfruit, grapefruit and lemongrass flavours.
*This product is past its best by date. It will still be fine to drink and tasty but just wont retain all the aroma and flavour of when it was first brewed.
