Homestead Brewery Hazy Scorsese & Mantango

Homestead Brewery

Released December 30, 2019

The brewers at Homestead in the Swan Valley have embraced the haze with the summer release Hazy Scorsese, nailing the appearance in this cloudy orange IPA. Fresh tropical and citrus aromas lead the way, accompanied by a silky mouthfeel and a dry bitterness supported by a light, smooth malt profile and a slight edge at the finish from the 5.8 percent booze. Like Martin's movies, expect this to be a crowd pleaser on the Mandoon Estate lawns during the summer months.

Joining Scorsese on tap is Mantango, inspired by a beer Homestead head brewer Justin Bishop created in collaboration with Bright Tank earlier in the year. That beer was the Stoned Fruit Brut Sour; here, it's a sour featuring a trio of kveik yeast strains which is the result of much testing and perfecting recipes on his pilot kit.

The combination of yeast strains was chosen to create both a guava character and earthy flavours and, as you can guess by the name, there's mango purée at play too, not to mention some citrusy hops, while there's a refreshing tartness that makes for easy summer drinking.
