Hop Nation x Mountain Culture Grouse Southern Fishing IPA


Earlier this year, the brew team from Mountain Culture came down from the Blue Mountains for a day in the great outdoors. With a common love of fishing, it was only logical that we headed out on the bay to see what we could catch. It was a truly epic trip, which inspired the beer we have crafted together - Grouse Southern, Fishing IPA.

Grouse Southern is a world first 'Fishing IPA', a style imagined to be the perfect companion for fishing, or any activity that requires a beverage capable of ultimate refreshment and sessionability. A full flavoured, moderately hopped beer, comprising of low bitterness, a balanced residual sweetness, a light ~misty~ haze, alongside an approachable 5% ABV.

Notes of pineapple and pine from the Australian Vic Secret hops, and a citric tropical punch from a dose of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin. We decided on a simple, yet silky malt base of Australian Pilsner Malt, Australian Wheat Malt, and Kiwi Malted Oats.
