James Squire Cabin Fever is the second limited edition beer to be released at scale from the Malt Shovel Brewery in 2017.
Outgoing Malt Shovel head brewer Chris Sheehan said the team envisioned James Squire Cabin Fever as a thirst-slaking IPA for everyday enjoyment.
“We’ve been hearing for a while that hop-lovers are asking for a more modern IPA from James Squire. That’s why we’ve introduced James Squire Cabin Fever – an American style session IPA,” he said.
“The beer’s initial malt sweetness gives way to a vibrant tropical hop hit and a clean finish that will leave you craving for more.”
The beer’s hop bill features Citra, Centennial, and the Fortnight hop blend from Bintani, combining for a “luscious citrus-tropical aroma”, according tho Malt Shovel.
“The national release of the special edition James Squire Cabin Fever follows the January release of Hop Father and is part of a long line of exciting developments for the James Squire brand in 2017,” the brewer said.
James Squire Cabin Fever will be available on tap in James Squire Brewhouses and in pack at First Choice, Liquorland and Vintage Cellars nationally from mid-June.
