The Nerotype Series

February sees the launch of our single hopped range of black IPA's.
First up, Simcoe, a resinous, piney & spicy hop, that delivers notes of strawberries & grapes, a much unsung hop that should make waves this year. There will be at least four in the range, depending on the popularity of the project. There will be  'Columbus', 'Warrior' & 'Herkules' versions to follow in a monthly sequence.  The series will see us explore the black IPA phenomena thoroughly after the success of our 'Heretic Imperial Black IPA' which used a blend of hops, it will be interesting to see how some of the big new US varieties play out in the beers. Brew One can be found at the White Rose Festival at Magna in Rotherham along with our new flagship IPA 'Diablo' starting on the 2nd March.

If you see it out & about in the coming month we'd love to hear your feedback!

will these available in leeds anytime soon? Have had your beers a few times in Mr Foleys so assume these singled hopped black ipas might make there way there too?

I'm a big fan of the style, even with the slightly oximornic name... some of the best black IPAs i've had have been a bit like a heavily hopped porter. which is just fine with me

I'm really looking forward to this series. The Rooster's limited edition Oxymoronic Black IPA was 100% Simcoe. I understand that they're going to make some more of those.

Sounds Good. I think Simcoe would work quite nicely roasted malts in a Black IPA.

Any plans to distribute down south/London anywhere?
