Epic Hopshine Pale Ale

Style

Pale Ale

Brewed In

Auckland

What to expect:

Sweet layers of passionfruit, papaya and mango

Judges Comments:

Auckland-based Epic doubled down in the pale ale category with this sumptuous New Zealand-hopped gem that lives up to its name – the hops literally shine. Epic have built their reputation on big American-style beers but have set a benchmark here for use of Kiwi hops. Passionfruit, papaya and mango are slathered across your palate with an oily, resinous mouthfeel painting the inside of your mouth with layers of flavour. The bitterness is a tap on the shoulder rather than a slap in the face. The judges praised this beer as “fresh, balanced and delicious – exemplary”.

Pairing Recommendation:

Sparkling New Zealand hops in this bright and lively beer will stand up to and cut through rich, gamey food. Try it with a slow-cooked BBQ pork shoulder.
