Abbeydale Brewery relaunch Deliverance IPA

Sheffield-based Abbeydale Brewery are excited to announce that they are bringing back their award-winning Deliverance IPA range this month, in collaboration with world renowned hop supplier Yakima Chief Hops.

After almost a two year absence, this new release is a statement of intent for the future of the Deliverance series, which Abbeydale will release as a stronger, higher alcohol beer than their well-established Voyager IPA series.

The new Deliverance is a 7.0% ABV double IPA, hopped with Sabro™ Brand HBC 438 and experimental hops HBC 472 and HBC 692. The result is an aromatic and juicy beer with a heady, resinous character and a whole host of tropical fruit flavours on the palate. It is full bodied and creamy with a lingering bitterness in the finish which really showcases the complexity and diversity of flavour that the chosen hop combination brings.

This beer is one of the first to be made in the UK which uses HBC 692, a newly available hop from the Yakima based Hop Breeding Company, supplied through YCH’s experimental hop program. Brewer Christie Mcintosh states “It’s fantastic to have access to such high quality and innovative ingredients such as experimental hops, giving us the ability to really get creative with the beers we are making and ensure they taste the best they possibly can.”

Yakima Chief Hops regional sales manager Jason Little says of the collaboration: “We are all really excited about the beer here at YCH and we really appreciate [Abbeydale Brewery’s] help and support in trialling these new varieties. The brew trial and feedback on the hops will provide invaluable information for the breeding programme team.”

Deliverance is launching just in time for local celebration Sheffield Beer Week, and is available in cask, keg and can formats from Friday March 6th. The beer also showcases distinctive artwork from Abbeydale Brewery’s in-house designer, James D Murphy.
