Shapeshifter Fun And Games & Waves

Oat Cream IPA & Hazy Pale
7.5% & 5.6%

Shapeshifter are at it again, making waves by throwing out styles that they know and love, all while having fun and playing games.

Fun And Games sees them return to familiar territory: an oat cream IPA that combines a really interesting mix of new hop Superdelic with classic NZ variety Nelson Sauvin along with a Canadian yeast by the name of Escarpment Hydra. Sweet, milky aromas are interwoven with mango and candi sugar, creating a mango ice cream vibe. There's just a touch of white grape from the Nelson but it's that sweet, fleshy mango that steals the show as a soft but full-bodied mouthfeel allows the hops to do their work, with just minimal bitterness.

Waves is a hazy pale which utilises a mix of Sabro Incognito, Bru-1 and Citra Lupomax hops in tandem with the aforementioned yeast. It works at the upper end of the pale ale category, body wise and with strong, clean, punchy hop characters of pineapple and passionfruit, with a touch of coconut, and a measured bitterness.
