Our new Wild Beer Session IPA!
Quantic is the first of two IPA’s to replace both Fresh in our core range.
This beer was conceptualised by our love of Fresh and a desire to see how we could improve that beer further still. Fresh has been one of our core offerings for over 5 years and to some of you guys dropping it may sound like mad, however, we are called The Wild Beer Co for a reason…
We are restless, curious, excitable and eager to embrace change!
The brief was simple yet challenging. How could we make Fresh even fresher?
To start with, we played around with the yeast and after some trials loved the cleanliness and lightness we got from using lager yeast. No Quantic isn’t a lager, an Indian Pale Lager or whatever you want to ‘technically’ call it. It’s just a great beer that we have decided to call a Session IPA due to dropping the abv to suit the beer.
We have been playful in our years of brewing Fresh by changing its hop profile meaning that beer has evolved over time. For Quantic with have settled on using a Simcoe & Mosaic as we absolutely love these hops and they delivered the freshness that we wanted to achieve from this beer.
The result is a luscious resinous pine character combined with a light citrus tang, both of which complement each other extremely well. The beer also delivers a subtle dryness which we have built in that is beautifully thirst-quenching.
