Australia’s largest independent family-owned brewery, Coopers, is releasing a distinctly Australian IPA to tantalise the tastebuds of craft beer drinkers across the country.
Coopers Australian IPA is a new limited edition release available in kegs and 375ml can format and will be sold in four packs and cartons through bottleshops from late April.
Managing Director and Chief Brewer, Dr Tim Cooper, said the brewing team had spent many months honing the unique hops blend to develop a distinctly Australian take on the traditional IPA.
“IPAs continue to grow in popularity among craft beer drinkers,” said Tim.
“We’re very mindful about when to bring out a new beer and an enormous amount of time goes into getting it right. We’ve come up with a great tasting Australian IPA that will suit any occasion.”
The full flavoured beer uses a blend of Australian exotic hops with citrus notes of mandarin and orange as well as piney and passionfruit characteristics.
While Australian IPAs have similar characteristics to American IPAs, it’s these local hops that provide a unique and authentic taste.
Coopers Australian IPA is the latest addition to the sixth-generation family brewery’s growing portfolio of craft beers that includes XPA (released in 2019) and the limited edition Hazy IPA (released in 2020).
Coopers Australian IPA has an ABV of 6.5% and a bitterness level of 40 IBU.
