The name for this beer started as a joke with the brewery team as the big beer we drink at the end of a night before we go home. We have used oats in this modern take on the classic IPA to capture more flavour from the huge amount of New Zealand hops that go into it and give it more body. High in alcohol to balance out the hop forward nature of the style and a clean malt base to accentuate those fruity wine characteristics. Push it!
