Beer: Vocation - Aoraki, Double IPA (DIPA) by IPAokay



Double IPA, 8%

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Vocation Aoraki is a New Zealand Pale Ale that is brewed by Vocation Brewery in the UK. This beer is named after the highest mountain in New Zealand, which is located in the Southern Alps. Aoraki is a Maori name that means “cloud piercer,” and this beer is inspired by the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand.

The beer pours a hazy golden colour, with a fluffy white head that lingers for a few moments. The aroma is hop-forward, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and a hint of pine. Upon taking the first sip, you’ll notice that the flavours are just as vibrant as the aroma. The beer has a juicy, fruity flavour with notes of grapefruit, passionfruit, and mango, along with a subtle hint of piney bitterness.

The mouthfeel of Aoraki is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, making it easy to drink and very refreshing. The finish is dry and slightly bitter, leaving a pleasant aftertaste that will linger on your palate.

Overall, Vocation Aoraki is a delicious and refreshing New Zealand Pale Ale that is well worth trying. It offers a unique and complex flavour profile, with a strong hop presence that is balanced by a subtle sweetness. This beer is perfect for those who are looking for a flavorful and refreshing drinking experience, and for fans of New Zealand hops in particular.
