Cornella Brewery are always keen to brew en vogue styles so it seems only natural for their attention to turn to one of IPA's coolest cool kids, the cold IPA. As we’ve explored here, the style is typically brewed with lager yeast, and fermented at above-normal temperatures. Does that make it an IPL? Detractors would argue yes but then advocates see it as more bitter than a classic lager and sitting more like a cleaner West Coast IPA than a hoppy lager.

First brewed for Bendigo On The Hop, Cold Mate rings true to the ethos of the style by pouring crystal clear, with the kind of fluffy white head you’d expect from a lager. The Munich malts provide a restrained but solid stage for the main event where the clean, crisp mouthfeel is but a precursor to the Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Here Cornella have wasted none of the run-up, and completely indulged that US superstar hop bill for a punchy trip between a pine forest and a fruit bowl.
