Nothing excites the craft beer drinker more than an IPA, almost the flagship of the american Craft Beer Revolution. This beer is far different from the stuffy sub 4% beers found in some back street pubs with more similarities to the traditional IPA brewed in the 18th century.
These days American IPA’s are brewed to be drunk fresh and use onscene amounts of fragrant American hops that give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character. Youngs have used three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops Simcoe, Entennial and Chinook.
Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops, beautiful and fragrant they exude grapefruit and floral character, the Simcoe tempers this fruit character with its more savoury pine resin character.
With a US West Coast Ale yeast strain sourced from an American Craft brewery giving such a clean fermentation profile these hops shine through explosively giving you a fantastic IPA to brew at home that rival the worlds best!
The IPA pours like a true IPA, pale gold with a fluffy white head, you’re immediately hit by the aroma of this beer, intense pine and grapefruit character a side of tropical fruit salad. On the palate this beer has just enough malt to hold the crazy amount of hops put in it giving you a riot of flavours tending towards the pine resin from the Simcoe, bitterness is full on, refreshing the palate and inviting another sip.
