Renaissance Little RIPA
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Renaissance Brewing
Style: Session IPA
Format: 330ml Bottle
Little RIPA was produced due to a demand by our customers for a 'sessionable' red ale (it seems they want to have 2 glasses of beer sometimes)…
So our band of merry brewers got together to design something red, yummy, and with a reasonable ABV. We gave it a malt forward flavour using a blend of NZ specialty malts to yield chewy toffee notes with a hint of roastyness.
Next comes the full on earthy fruity hop flavours with spicy undertones, which we achieve by late hopping with a melange of kiwi hops. The result is a hoppy yet balanced red ale that is lighter in alcohol than some of the monster brews out there today.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
