Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the oatiest of them all? Introducing Hop Nation’s 100% Oat IPA. Using just oats and a little lactose for body, their brewers also added oat milk to double down on oaty goodness. Coming in at 6.5% ABV, this creamy IPA pours a hazy pale colour, with a generous double dry hop of Riwaka, Idaho and Amarillo to round things off.
Hop Nation is a craft brewery that started in 2014 by winemaking friends Sam Hambour and Duncan Gibson. With years of work and travel through several wine regions of the world between them, Sam and Duncan have been exposed to not only great wines of the world but incredible international beers. With this behind the scene influence and years of backyard brewing experience, they decided to create a craft brewery in Melbourne, Australia.
DID YOU KNOW?
In naming this beer, Hop Nation sought out a great American number two, Buzz Aldrin, the second guy on the moon. With the huge success of their first release, The Fiend, like Mr. Aldrin, this beer has some big steps to follow but they are confident this little hop dude can do it. In addition, it weighs in at a decent 6.5% ABV – so, may the buzz be with you.
