We went big on the hops here with lots of Simcoe, Chinook and Columbus for a classic take on the West Coast IPA style. We went big on bitterness too, to balance out the malt body.
This beer was the real highlight of 2020 for so many lovers of great beer. A true modern classic and awesome representation of a West Coast IPA.
Many beer writers and reviewers claimed it as their beer of the year.
The overwhelming love for this beer has resulted in it not being a one off brew and it now continues to be a regular treat to be able to grab hold of cans of this his beautiful smasher from Elusive. So much so that we really wanted to get it into more hands and offer it for sale too.
Elusive Brewing creates beer with one eye on tradition and the other on taking things to the next level. Founded by a home brewer who went on to win awards at national level, from our small brewery in Finchampstead, Berkshire.
Owned and run by Andy Parker (the nicest man in beer), award winning home brewer who went professional and opened his own brewery. If you’re home brewer then you’ll know just how much support Andy gives back to the home brew community with his excellent book published by CAMRA and the amount of his own time he gives up to talk to home brewing groups and from the way he will happily share his recipes for home brewers to brew at home. But as well as this he is an extremely talented brewer who is putting out many beers that we just love so much that we had to make them part of our range available on The Malt Miller.
