Style: New England IPA
Fat, juicy and so very hoppy, Jiffy Squid is our take on a New England IPA.
Jiffy Squid New England IPA has arrived in can as Mornington’s latest #tinnage release, thanks to the huge push from NEIPA fans demanding it.
Jiffy Squid was originally brewed in early 2017 by Mornington as a keg-only release, but as the popularity for the hazy style grew, so did call for Squid cans.
The hazy latte-colour of the beer, which to the unexpecting can be quite confrontational, is deceptively packed full of flavour. With All the floral and fruity aspects of an IPA without the bitterness makes Jiffy Squid a perfect Spring-time quencher.
The artwork is created by (until-recently) local Melbourne illustrator Jake Minton and is full of references paying homage to the origins of the style including the iconic New England pine forest in the background and even the Vermont-manufactured missiles our squiddy friend has perched.
#tinnage is a unique concept aimed at knowledgeable craft beer lovers and only available in cans. Mornington Specialty beers developed a strong following amongst craft beer aficionados, available for limited times at the Brewery Bar and a few craft beer pubs and bars.
#tinnage cans now make Mornington Specialty beers more widely available but still in limited runs.
