Riwakamania is running wild, brother!
Highlighted by the New Zealand hop strain, Riwaka, Riwakamania by Hop Butcher For The World (Darien, Illinois) is a hazy IPA packed with notes of tropical and passion fruits. A new addition to their resume of fantastic IPAs, Riwakamania dares you to stick your nose close and get a smell of the fragrant goodness. Noted for “flavors of blue cotton candy, citrus grove, dank, and green garden,” this beer was canned just last week, making it the opportune time to grab some.
Hop Butcher For The World has been making use of the Riwaka strain in other styles as well. Recently, they released a Kolsch-style beer (Throop) that utilizes this hop from down under. That being said, the brewery is still best known for its take on the hazy IPA.
Their portfolio features numerous takes on the style IPA, all of which have let them hone their approach and learn different brewing methods to best accentuate the different characteristics of the style
