HALIFAX, NS – The latest in a series of beers created by Rockbottom Brewpub brewmater Greg Nash in collaboration with members of the BrewNosers homebrew club is set to be tapped today (May 4, 2012) at Rockbottom.
Dubbed The Ultimate White IPA in honour of the Halifax Ultimate Frisbee League, the beer was co-created by Nash and homebrewer Rob Douglass, and is described as follows:
Our latest Brewnoser collaboration brew is a hybrid of sorts; West Coast IPA meets Belgian-style Witbier. Brewed with malted barley, wheat, oats, coriander, orange and plenty of hops: bright and fresh with hop forward citrus notes, coriander and orange cut through making their presence known. Finishes silky and crisp with a lingering bitterness. Refreshing hybrid deliciousness for your glass
The Ultimate White IPA will be available on tap at the Rockbottom Brewpub while supplies last.
Dark copper-bronze colour with a thick light beige head. Aroma of toasty malt, peppery rye, and pineapple candy. Medium bodied, a bit creamy on the palate. Flavour is predominantly malty at first - a bit of caramel, some rye bread crust - with subtle pine and citrus hops. But as it warms, the hops start to come forward and deliver the 60 IBU promised on the can. By the end of the glass, each swallow finishes with a nice hit of grapefruit peel and pine needle.
