Brewed as a replacement for our long serving house APA ‘Base Isolator’, Base Jumper has the same malt profile and ABV, but made with a barrage of different hops (US Simcoe, US Cascade, US Centenial, NZ Orbit, NZ Motueka).
This premium cider is made from a combination of over 50 different cider apple varieties, sourced from small independent growers who are as passionate about their apples as we are about cider. A full bodied flavour with good length and balance. Released annually with a limited supply – it’s worth the wait.
Looks: Deep golden.
Smells: Ripe apple and tropical fruit.
Tastes: Tropical fruits, nutty, spice, full bodied, balanced.
An aggressive, tropical NZ-hopped aroma gives way to a rich, copper malt base and a huge, lingering bitterness to finish. In an ode to its ancestors, we’ve used all English malts in the grist and a bold English bittering hop in the boil.
A hop-filled IPA with no compromises in malt presence.
‘Sleuthhound’ was an old Scottish term for a bloodhound, though it seems that there were actually slight differences between the two dogs. It’s fitting then that Sleuthhound was originally the home-brewed beer that Bloodhound was derived from, with it featuring a different yeast, different hops and also a touch of peat-smoked malt. The result is a rich, fruity and full-bodied red ale featuring a hint of smoke.
