It's not cheating, it's @phantasm.nz !!

Can the hazy get even juicier??!! Well we got our hands on some elusive Phantasm from New Zealand to find out! This ingredient is an extraction from Sauvignon Blanc grape skins and it is chalk full of thiols – What are thiols? They are organic compounds high in aromatic molecules. When added during the brewing process, it helps add to the explosion of aroma and flavour. So yes, it gets JUICY!!

To fully unlock the thiols, we use a thiolized yeast (Thiol Libre) from @escarpmentlabs to firmly punch our ticket to the tropics!

All this fun tech talk aside, Cheat Code is an insanely smooth and creamy IPA with low bitterness and ALL the tropical hop flavour. The nose will hit you hard with tropical and stone fruits, pineapple, candy and a slight spice. Enjoy this low carb hazy and gain an extra life or two!
