New Shoots

From: £14.80

West Coast IPA – 4.7%

A celebration of spring, New Shoots is a hop-forward pale ale. Plenty of classic American West Coast hops, with the addition of freshly foraged conifer tips, makes for a refreshing ale with punchy citrus and pine flavours.


New Shoots is named after its not-so-secret ingredient; the fresh tips from larch, spruce and pine trees, gathered in the spring and added to the beer. Young conifer tips give fresh grassy and citrus notes (as well as light piney, resinous flavours), and these align beautifully with the 5 different hop varieties we’ve used. Wonderfully quaffable in the sunshine.

  1. Tom L

    Probably my favourite from Strangers, shame it’s only a seasonable brew but looking forward to it coming around again in future. Higher on the bitterness for me than similar brews, but it works and is also a real grower – I can rarely settle with just one can!

  2. George McCue

    Really enjoyed my first taster pack every can had something different. The American New shoots and the Narrow boat ipa where outstanding

  3. Tony

    Didn’t know what to expect with the pine but surprised to find it very enjoyable, the perfect balance. Lovely and refreshing. A big hit!
