Hopshine: Sunshine in a Bottle

2017 Re-Launch – 9 October 

Team Epic is back on deck, and there’s no better way to celebrate than releasing a new beer to get things rolling.

Introducing Hopshine Pale Ale.

Think about all the stuff you love most about summer; Sitting in the warm sun with a delicious cold beer, with the smell of sunscreen and the sound of cicadas in the background. We wanted to design the best beer for times like this, and we think this is it.

Made with German ale malts and US grown Cascade and Mosaic hops, this beer is inspired by drinking a great beer in the sun. Having made heaps of great IPA’s in 2016, some thought has been given to a beer that is a bit lighter in alcohol and bitterness, but keeping that signature Epic hoppiness. We are letting the hops shine, under the sunshine.

Aroma of mango, passionfruit and citrus. A flavour that is tropical juice married with a slightly caramel maltiness, and a light bitter finish.

ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 30

Launching at Vultures Lane on Thursday 12 January.

500ml bottle stock is launching this week (9 January).

I like how that logo is locked into the top left corner as you scroll… So, what’s the ABV on this beer?

Chris Hannent says:

Hey! ABV is 5.5%

[…] just seen a nice write up on Hopshine Pale Ale by Drinksbiz Magazine – thanks […]

Is this beauty still available?

Sorry we have sold out. If you hunt around there might be a store with a bottle or two left. It has been a very successful beer. Guess it needs to come back again next summer.
