Garage Project Bossa Nova
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Garage Project
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 650ml Bottle
Translated from Brazilian Portuguese it means the new style. This beer is uncharted territory for the Garage. Brewed with a hop cocktail of Equinox, Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy and El Dorado, Bossa Nova Baby is fermented with a wild strain of yeast, giving it a unique tart pineapple and mango character. To this idiosyncratic base, we've added a fruit medley of guava, mango, papaya, passionfruit and lime creating a beer that is part IPA, part tropical fruit cocktail. It's always good to try something new.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I doubt Garage Project have ever sold a bad beer, and this is no exception. Despite how it's billed, this is very much an IPA. I believe large quantities of fruit were used in its production, but this is in no way a 'fruit' beer. Not an extremely malty IPA. Great nose. 10/10.
