MAYSTAY – South African IPA


MayStay is an experimental brew with a new locally developed hybrid hop strain. The beer is brewed with roughly the same malt bill as Hammerhead and uses one bittering and a one aroma hop only. The result is a well-balanced IPA with a distinct floral hop character and significant bitterness. Using only locally grown hops this is a style that could establish itself as a typical local style over time.
