Heaven Cent IPA

We are delighted to introduce our brand new beer, Heaven Cent. This session IPA was created with the Centennial hop, hence the name Heaven Cent. A perfectly balanced IPA with beautiful fruity aromas and a citrus tang.  All thanks to the heavenly flair of our master brewers.


Our Master Brewer Stuart set out a task for our brewer Lisa to create an IPA that didn’t use the heavily sought-after hop varieties such as Citra, Simcoe and Cascade but it was still to have a strong citrus aroma that the IPA style is known for.
Lisa, the latest addition to the Harviestoun family, took to this task with great passion and used her knowledge to test out different hops to achieve a crisp, fruity and juicy session IPA. Lisa used Centennial hops (which inspired the beer name) for aroma to give light floral notes with some citrus and also Eureka hops to add a tropical fruit juiciness. For bitterness she chose Magnum and Waimea hops which gives a crisp, clean bitterness and a pleasing lasting finish.
A heavenly flair, indeed!


Meet Lisa Matthews: 
“I grew up on the Isle of Islay, also known as the ‘Whisky Isle,’ so brewing and distilling have always been a big part of my life. I always wanted to do something scientific, so I moved from Islay to Dundee in 2014 to do my HNC in Applied Science, and I got a job in a brewery just outside St. Andrews. This is when I had my ‘craft beer awakening’ and realised I loved the process and the beers! I enrolled on the BSc Brewing & Distilling course at Heriot-Watt in 2016 to turn my passion into a career, and the rest is history!”
Tasting notes:
The aroma comes from the addition of Centennial hops, as does it’s name. As a session IPA the maltiness and bitterness are perfectly balanced. There is an initial citrus tang on the palate followed by clean and crisp floral notes and a hint of spiciness. This beer pairs perfectly with stone fired pizza, Thai curries or charred BBQ chicken.
