Three Boys Gas NZIPA was originally brewed as a collaboration with Burkes and took third place at the 2021 Smiths IPA challenge. Now Three Boys have got it into cans for a wider release in their Brewers Reserve series. For an NZIPA the nose manages some strikingly American notes. Grapefruit and orange citrus, apricot and lychee with some spice and rosewater. The palate is packed with rich juicy malt, bittersweet red grapefruit and candied orange peel. Great concentration of flavour precisely contained by a firm bitterness. A superb reminder of just how good an all NZ-hopped IPA can be.
