Pirate Life Zappa IPA
Brewery: Pirate Life Brewing
Style: IPA - India Pale Ale
Format: 500ml Can
His name is synonymous with the eclectic, the prolific, and the avant-garde. So when CLS Farms in the Yakima Valley released a hop honouring the legendary musician Frank "Zappa", we naturally got on board.
Discovered growing wild in the hills of New Mexico, this varietal is the ideal candidate for a single hopped IPA. Much like the artist, it displays a host of unique characteristics - and with over 70 kg in the brew itself, you'll likely experience them all.
The beer is golden, with a head that'll cling to your lip. Expect aromas of pineapple and stone-fruit, with lifted notes of mint and spice. On the palate, a simple grain bill lets Zappa take centre stage - after all, that's where a star belongs.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
much prefer the Mosiac, Amarilla, and Tropical IIPA from Pirate Life (my favourite brewery )
