When you're good at something – or very good, in the case of Uraidla and the brewing of hop-forward pales and IPAs – why not keep at it? With Serpent Shrine, the Adelaide Hills brewers send another quality hop monster through the brewery gates. Double dry-hopped IPA with Cryo Pop, Nectaron and Nelson Sauvin with a touch of Saaz in the mash, there's a locally-sourced yeast tying it all together, ensuring the hop characters are pronounced and extra juicy.
Breakfast juice has been used before to describe Uraidla’s IPAs and this one is no different: clean, juicy, ripe fruit characters take charge from the first crack of the can. Guava and peach dominate with a touch of orange citrus, pineapple and a little sherbet mixed in as well. There's some sweet candy sugar slithering around, adding to the breakfast juice vibe, while the guava and peach really hit home flavour wise, with just a touch of spice on the back palate and a mild bitterness.
