What does it even mean ?

We met our new pals at Beak for the first time during the hop harvest out in the Pacific Northwest. Shortly after, we tried their wares at a tap takeover and were chuffed to pieces with how good their beers are, especially for such a young brewery! Fast forward a few months and we’ve welcomed the gang over to brew a big juicy DIPA, blending aspects of both our beers. Bill is the result.

What you need to know though

Don’t let the pale appearance fool you. This beer was built on a base of Heidelberg pilsner with heaps of oats, wheat, wheat malt and rye. Hop-wise we squeezed in as much Citra as our whirlpool could handle before adding Citra Incognito, and a day 1 dry hop of, you guessed it, more Citra! Post fermentation, this already Citra-saturated beer was met with its New Zealand cousins Riwaka and Wai-iti, plus Citra Cryo. Creamy and rich, with a full body that supports the dominating mango and passionfruit aroma, and soft notes of sauvignon blanc, gooseberry, orange and strawberry.
