As ever, be wary of over-chilling your beer. More chill means less flavour. To learn more read my post on recommended serving temperatures.
Flavours to expect
This IPA should have a pretty classic taste. Well, classic for craft beer anyway. The two hops used, Citra and Moscaic, are frequently seen in this type of west coast IPA. Expect citrus and fruit backed up with a piney bitterness over a biscuity golden malt body. There should be some dank notes and resin to it as well. Noice.
- Citra: mango, tropical fruit, lime
- Mosaic: tropical fruit, blueberry, citrus
Pair beers like this with strong, spicy food or bold, sweet desserts. It should also work with mild blue cheese.
