Limited Edition: Enigma Single Hop IPA

Eight Degrees Brewing - Enigma SHIPA tap badgeAs the name suggests, the Enigma hop has a flavour profile which is difficult to crack. Some say raspberries and redcurrant – others say rock melon and tropical fruit.

Enigma now forms part of our Single Hop IPA series. A solid malt backbone transports this wonderful hop to the fore. Expect lots of fruity rock melon, spiced with some orange zest and a balancing crisp hop bitterness.

Puzzling, ambiguous and inexplicable; we challenge you to discover for yourself Enigma’s unique, yet irresistible, flavours and aromas.
