Rocks Brewing re-releases IPA
Sydney, 26 July 2012: Rocks Brewing Company has today announced the long awaited return of its award winning India Pale Ale (IPA) to Harts Pub in The Rocks, Sydney. The IPA was recently awarded a Silver Medal at the 2012 Australian International Beer Awards.
At 7% Alcohol, the beer is big and has its front foot forward at 70 Bitterness Units with a truck load of dry hops thrown in at the end.
Rocks Brewing Company first launched its limited edition IPA in 2011 after General Manager Mark Fethers returned from San Diego, the home of many craft beers, all ‘green and hoppy eyed’. “My withdrawal from hops was painful and normal beer didn’t have any flavour anymore”, he said. “Getting off the plane I called Rocks Brewing Head Brewer Scotty Morgan and announced the IPA was to be our next specialty brew.”
This first brew of IPA sold out in less than three weeks, which naturally left the crew at Rocks Brewing questioning if it should be brewed more often.
Fethers and Morgan attended the Craft Brewers Conference in San Diego this April and to the delight of Rocks Brewing punters, returned inspired for another round of Rocks Brewing IPA.
Out of the 52 local breweries on show, Morgan said the majority of the IPA’s were above 6% with huge hop assaults on the palate, most with remarkable balance. “The first time I tasted Green Flash West Coast IPA I was hooked and like Fethers last year, I was like a walking hop cone when we got back to Sydney after two weeks of IPA drinking,” he said. “We’re very excited about the return of IPA to Harts Pub.”
Limited stock is available and already running out, so to secure your share of the IPA call Nick Becker at Rocks Beer Sales on 0421 059 969.
