Our collaboration with local brewer friends, La Pirata, may not be the strongest ale you have encountered, but it certainly is bold. We went big on the hop additions to the whirlpool in search of plenty citrussy marmalade flavours to complement a base of pilsner, vienna and crystal malts. Then dry-hopped with HBC492 for an extra layer of hop character, lending herbal, pine and more citrus notes to the finished beer.
