What makes it special?
To hop the beer we tried a technique which we had never used before, turning our mash tun into a hop back, to essentially make a hoppy tea. The results were pretty spectacular. As the hops were added to the hot wort the brewery was filled with the pungent aroma of hops as steam rose off of the mash tun. Plenty of Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Stella and Simcoe hops filled the air with the fragrance of sweet smelling orange zest .
The beer was named by Andrea himself after his time spent in the West of Scotland as an Italian.
