Naked Rabbit is a bright, crisp pale ale with mango and juniper. A clean malt aroma, tinged with a hint of caramel is balanced by a fresh, slightly exotic hoppiness, enhanced by the lusciousness of mango and the woodsy, cooling qualities of juniper berries. Mouthfeel is substantial but not too rich; the flavor is complex and balanced, while the finish is long, clean and lightly resiny.
A chance encounter between our two breweries led to a realization of some common values and a collaboration was born. It turns out that juniper from the cool north and mango from the torrid south are soulmates, amplifying each other and blending perfectly into a new creation.
The name is a mashup of our brewery names; Nøgne Ø means “naked island.” It has been an honor to work with Norway’s first and most important craft brewery.
