Session IPAs are all the rage now in the US, and the UK is just discovering what a good idea they are.
Neck Oil packs the same flavours you would expect from its stronger IPA cousins, but at 4.3% it's much easier to drink. There is a lot of citrusy green hop in the aroma and a light but full-bodied mouthfeel, leading to a big bitter finish.
An every day, all day, easy drinking, go to IPA. This started life as a home-brew. Beavertown wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck.
Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of late hop additions throughout the last 20 minutes of the boil and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly ‘easy’ IPA.
|HOPS:||Magnum, Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, Galaxy, Vic Secret, Mosaic|
|FOOD PARING:||A good match with fish and curries because the hops cut right through. It's also great with barbecue food, as well as a pulled pork.|
