Uraidla's brewers once again showcase the depths of their brewing skills when it comes to hops within Spellbinder: a hazy IPA. In this case, they've utilised a hop thiol-boosting technique (hop mashing) to extract as much in the way of fruity aromas from the hops as they can, then let biotransformation during fermentation do the rest. In this instance, Saaz hops were used in the mash alongside Lallemand’s expressive Verdant IPA yeast strain. Throw in a double dry hop featuring Cryo Pop and Wai-iti and you have another banging IPA from the Uraidla crew.

Spellbinder pours with a solid, bright yellow haze with hop aromas that are incredibly pronounced: there are underlying mango and peach notes supporting a more dominant, zingy lime. The body is full yet the mouthfeel remains light and fluffy, while an initial sweetness heralds more lime, juicy mango and peach to taste. The bitterness is noticeable, but not over the top, with Spellbinder showcasing what Uraidla do best: making hops cast a wicked spell.
