Holgate Brewhouse Alpha Crucis (330ml)
Style: Pale Ale - American
Brewed by: Holgate Brewhouse (Woodend, VIC, Australia)
ABV: 5.5% / IBU: 50
A fruity and resinous IPA using the best and “brightest” Australian hops and malt, and so named after the brightest star in the Southern Cross Constellation.
From the early days of Holgate Brewhouse the finishing hops were almost exclusively imported due to the lack of locally grown hops with character. Thankfully, the Australian brewing and hop scene has come of age and the local hop growers run an awesome breeding program to develop innovative hop varieties.This Australian IPA is born out of a love affair with the new breed of great new hops coming from Hop Products Australia that saw us brew up a series of Australian-hop driven single hop IPAs in our experimental Tank 9 series. Alpha Crucis uses the knowledge we gained from our experiments to highlight the incredible attributes of these ripper Aussie hops. Built from a very simple malt bill of Australian malts we let the hops shine to create an Antipodean IPA suitable for our climate.
