James Squire Hop Thief 7 Galaxy & Mosiac Hops
Brewery: Malt Shovel Brewery (Lion Nathan Co.)
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Hop Thief American-style Pale Ale began as a Varietal Series – an occasional brew that started out as a chance for the James Squire brewers to experiment. It proved so popular that we're delighted to now make it a welcome addition to the core James Squire craft beer range. And unlike any other craft beer, this happily hop-heavy brew has the ability to keep reinventing itself (much like James Squire himself) thanks to its changing, evolving hop bill. “Hop Thief is a truly unique craft beer in that the seasonal changes in the hop bill mean we're able to keep experimenting and reinventing the brew.” says Chris Sheehan, Head Brewer at the Malt Shovel Brewery (Home to the James Squire craft beer range). And so, Australian craft beer lovers, we wait with baited breath and beer glasses at the ready for every fresh batch.
It's particularly exciting because it means this beer always promises an element of surprise. Having a craft beer that keeps changing its core ingredient on a regular basis to take advantage of the wonderful range of hop varieties from around the world makes an already special beer even more special. And you can bet James Squire would have approved of that!
Hop Thief 7 American-style Pale Ale is a beautifully balanced blend of galaxy and mosaic hops that delivers fresh citrus and tropical fruit aromas while retaining subtle earth characteristics and the firm malt backbone - for which this most favoured and unique flavoured craft brew is known.
