Gunnamatta IPA

By sarahhowe, also posted in News on

Yeastie Boys Tea Leaf Gunnamatta IPA brewed at Adnams for WetherspoonTasting Notes and Ingredients

A dry-leafed India Pale Ale infused with Earl Grey Blue Flower Tea. Brewed with Golden Promise Pale Malt, CaraPils, CaraMunich, and Wheat Malt and hopped with Pacific Jade, Motueka, Pacifica and Southern Cross. This IPA has an intoxicating floral and citrus aroma with a quenching, dry finish.

What's the Story

The Yeastie Boys are known individually as Stu McKinlay and Sam Possenniske and hail from New Zealand where they have produced several award-winning beers since they started brewing in 2009. J D Wetherpoon invited them to come to our brewery to recreate their Tea Leaf IPA Gunnamatta, a beer which had won the 2012 People's Choice Award at The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular.
