#HBBAdvent Beer 1: Verdant Even Sharks Need Water IPA (Cornwall)

Verdant says: We put together an A team of Simcoe, Citra and Galaxy with our super fruity house yeast strain to make a classic New England IPA – just a hint of bitterness, and a balance of sharper citrus fruits to stop the tropical aroma being too sweet.

We say: Our advent calendars always reflect our year in beer, so it seemed obvious that Verdant should kick off our 2018 box. It’s been an amazing year for these guys - a new London tap room, a Falmouth seafood tapas joint coming soon plus they’ve smashed their crowdfunding targets to boot. 2018 has also seen us get our hands on more Verdant beer than ever before, ridiculously fresh from the source, which you lot have eagerly snapped up.

This batch of Even Sharks is a pure juice bomb, big on tropical flavours and succulent hints of melon. A cracking start to Christmas!
