Hope Brewhouse – XPA (Extra Pale Ale)

This XPA is a bold aromatic and fruity American Pale Ale.

Tropical fruit, citrus, toffee and malt flavours and aromas are dominant. The beer is rounded off with solid bitterness that is typical to the style.

Hope Brewhouse is run from Hope Estate Winery right here in the Hunter Valley.

Brewer Matt Hogan brings a winemaker’s approach to brewing, adding new dimensions to old favourites. He also brings a maniacal level of productivity, knocking out a relentless stream of interesting new brews. At any given time he has about 10 different beers on the go, from classic sunny afternoon cleansers to heavyweight oak-barrel flavour monsters. Even a gluten-free number that’ll give you a whole new appreciation of rice.
