Flavours to expect
This is an IPA, so it’s familiar territory. Biscuit malts and up-front hop bitterness with fruity flavours. This one should display notes of citrus fruits including grapefruit and lime. The hop used is also a well-known one, Citra.
- Citra: mango, tropical fruit, lime
Robust flavours call for a robust dish. Don’t put this up against anything too dainty. Look instead for strong flavours and perhaps a bit of spice. A curry maybe, or Mexican cuisine. Bold, sweet desserts like caramel apple tart or ginger cake; carrot cake is a classic pairing too. And mild blue cheese should do well.
