Our brewery is located in Silverdale, the gateway city to the Hibiscus Coast Highway. In season, the road up the coast is lined with hibiscus flowers. We took this as inspiration to create Hibiscus Coast Haze.
As well as a blend of four different hops we used dried hibiscus flowers in this brew to bring on a little of the tartness of the hibiscus as well as the rosy colour to make it a true representation of the beautiful flower.
The result is a very hop forward hazy IPA with fruity notes. It is smooth on the palate with a medium light bitterness on the finish. The hibiscus notes linger very subtly in the background.
