Espiga Riwaka & Strata is the seventh beer in the DUAL HOPS collection that we brewed this year. The IPAs in this collection have a cloudy appearance with kgs and kgs of hops.
This time, the hops selected have been the New Zealander riwaka, much in demand, for its attractive notes that combine passion fruit and grapes, and Strata, a very peculiar American hop for its notes of strawberries, currants, passion fruit, grapefruit. and herbal, which provide fresh notes ideal for this warm and summer season.
It has a hazy appearance, a deep golden color and a creamy white foam. In the aroma, there are intense notes of passion fruits, currants, strawberries and tropical fruits that rest on citrus notes, thus highlighting the notes of both hops in both the aroma and the flavor. Also after this balsamic and tropical journey in the mouth we appreciate the flavor of the oat and wheat cereals and the silky texture that they contribute to the body of this beer.
