The Grifter Big Sur West Coast IPA
Style: IPA - India Pale Ale
Format: 375ml Can
If you like American hops, this is the beer for you. BIG SUR (named after the mountainous coastal region in California) is our take on the acclaimed West Coast IPA. A style which holds a special place in the hearts of all craft beer drinkers. Two types of crystal malt were used to build slightly more body than usual in this beer. This was necessary in order to balance our intense hop regime during its 90 minute boil (not to mention the dry hop). This constant layering has created a plethora of piney, citrus and tropical fruit notes.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
another classic example of a modern beer style
No broken rules, just take a modern style and do it well. Great blend of fruitiness, matiness and hops. A by the books, but very good, West coast IPA.
Nice and fruity
Lots of fruit on the nose and on the palate; resinous pine, grapefruit, orange, cumquat, citrus zest, all with a nice bitterness.
