We Canned Springtime.
Beyond the dark and winding places, lies a place where new life is in bloom. Clean, clear and vibrant, a garden bursts forth with the first buds of spring.
Ready to take you on a journey somewhere fresh, Counter Culture presents Bloom Springs: a pillowy smooth New Age IPA with lush tropical hop notes and an ABV of 6.4%.
A wheat-heavy IPA, Bloom Springs was brewed using the latest in hop technology from the Bath Haas’ innovation range, including LUPOMAX, INCOGNITO and SPECTRUM.
For the hop heads frothing on what this new technology means, Bloom Springs was brewed using new, concentrated hops that are consistent, efficient, and optimised for flavour.
These hops not only produce flavours that are bigger, bolder, and brighter but because they use less vegetative matter, it also results in less beer loss, less solid waste and more beer to enjoy! Something we can all raise a glass to.
What is a New Age IPA?
Our Brewers have been experimenting with the latest and greatest in hop innovation with the release of our 14th Counter Culture, Bloom Springs – a New Age Hazy IPA.
We caught up with our Head Brewer Caolan Vaughan to chat more about the latest Counter Culture and get his take on what a New Age IPA is. Caols also takes us through the additions of Incognito, Lupomax & Spectrum hops and what each brings to this delicious beer.
A big thanks to Barthhass for providing us with these incredible hop products.
From today (Monday 8th November), you can purchase your Bloom Springs from our online store or at our Byron Bay Tasting Room and Brisbane brewery. It’s leaving our brewery gates today and breezing into all good bottleshops shortly.
