Northern Monk X Deya X Ben Mather - Skelatory DDH IPA 6.8% 440ml Can
all good beer.
We love their infectious enthusiasm and geekiness for brewing, their attention to detail and above all, we share a very similar view on how we want our IPAs to be and how to go about it. As a side note, DEYA founder Theo loves playing a bit of 5-a-side and we were short a player for the team Monk kickabout... so we put the call out and he answered.
This IPA utilises a blend of New Zealand, Australian and American hop varieties, with NZ Motueka taking the lead by its distinctive upfront lime character, Vic Secret and Mosaic contributing hints of passion fruit, dark berries, and grapefruit. Continuing a bit of a theme in our projects with DEYA, we put together a multigrain grist, with the earth and spice flavors of malted rye prominent once again, this time backed up with malted oats and flaked barley for a robust, complex backbone.
