FIRST BREWED 2017

X-Wing XPA is a lean and nimble version of our Millennium Falcon Imperial IPA.

About

Each year on May 4th, the renowned Millennium Falcon blasts off into the craft beer cosmos. It’s a huge 9.5% ABV Imperial IPA showcasing the juiciest hops in the universe. However, our brewers are an impatient lot and couldn’t wait another 6 months. They also wanted the same hop hit in a beer they could drink by the pint! So, in this way the X-Wing XPA was born – a lean, mean fighting machine. While the X-Wing may not match the Falcon in sheer firepower, it more than makes up for this with a nimble flair that sees it run rings around lesser XPAs.

Tasting Notes

X-Wing is built on a lean malt chassis and loaded up with just about as much hop flavour and aroma that we could shove into a sessionable XPA. It’s armoury is impressive, with Azacca, Citra, El Dorado and Mosaic all playing their part in delivering in massive payload of super-fruity US hop flavour: think juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum. X-Wing may be small but the Force is with her!
