Serving temperature

Serve this beer at 7°C to 10°C; at least an hour in the fridge, maybe up to 90 minutes. As ever, be wary of over-chilling your beer. More chill means less flavour.

Flavours to expect

I expect most of us know the drill with this kind of beer pretty well by now: big malts, big hops – in this case leaning on the citrus button more than the tropical one – leading to a big, juicy flavour. This is supposed to be Juicebox IPA turned up to 11, but does it live up to its little brother?

Pure tropical, fruity pleasure in a glass. Fresh orange zest and heaps of extremely aromatic hops give this beer bright, intense flavours of mango, papaya and bitter orange. A restrained yet present bitterness makes you want that next sip, and the next one, and the one after that. Hoppy, zesty, refreshing.

Food pairings

Fourpure suggest you try Juicebox with cheesecake, a burger, a fruit salad or glazed ham; these should do very nicely for Deucebox too. It ought to hold its own against a curry with all those hops going on.
