Serving temperature

Serve this beer between 7°C and 10°C; stick it in the fridge for 90 minutes.

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 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

Food pairings

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.
