VENUSIAN PALE ALE (VPA)
NEW ZEALAND PALE ALE
Brewed with Lemon Grass, Kaffir Lime Leaf & Grapefruit Peel
7.5% ABV, 80 IBU’s
Venusian Pale Ale, a precocious little number using some of the more unusual local flora and fauna you find hanging around here in the less civilized parts of the solar system. Lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf and grapefruit peel that we pinched from rations, meld seamlessly with Venusian Spear Fungus and that funny green stuff the local chappies seem to like licking off the rocks. Zesty is the word that springs to mind and at 7.5% abv it’s bloody good for morale.
One of two collaboration beers brewed with New Zealand sculptor and prop designer Greg Broadmore (who’s worked on the Lord of the Rings and District 9 movies), this spiced IPA is an example of Garage Project’s penchant for teaming up with artists, musicians, even a ballet company. Lemongrass and kaffir lime add citrus aromatics as well as a cool herbal note to the strongly bitter sip.
