Nowhereman & Mane Liquor Hopkuna Hoptata IPA

Nowhereman Brewing Co

Published November 17, 2020

While many are talking about the fragmentation of beer styles, some with increasingly parodic nomenclature, there’s also the name to contend with. What seems humorous, and a little cute here, actually starts making a whole lotta sense when linking Mane Liquor and manes, especially once you realise Studio Papa’s artwork features a big cat version of Mane’s Josh Daley, complete with matching tattoos.

It’s a creative concept but what the collaborators didn’t do was create a cocktail of adjuncts, hype and genre-bending fermentation. No, instead they brewed a classic West Coast IPA, one that drips with Simcoe, Chinook and a modern dusting of El Dorado. As such, there’s grapefruit, a dank, weedy nose and resinous undertones, plus flashes of pineapple before a firm, piney bitterness and appropriately dry, bitter West Coast length completes the picture.

Hopkuna Hoptata, there are no worries here.
