Yeastie Boys Irascible The Flamingo (440ml Can)
A strong and super pale Belgian-style IPA that showcases layers and layers of orange. From our unique yeast, through the four aromatic varieties of hops, weve created a citrus orchard in a beer. To amplify the beautiful orange notes of our unique Kveik yeast, weve loaded this IPA with a few buckets full of hops showcasing orange citrus fruits:
Waimea (heirloom orange) Mandarina Bavaria (Mandarin orange) Rakau (whole orchard) Amarillo (Seville orange)
The malt base is very light, with loads of Pilsner malt and a touch of Vienna, in an effort to allow the fruity fermentation esters and hop aromatics to shine.
Super pale, aromatic, and deliciously drinkable despite its strength, this complex India Pale Ale is going to be a winner on taps as the weather cools and people seek out something heartier while still longing for the brightness of our fading summer.
As for the flamingo who inspired the beer, lets just say that all flamingos are angry but only one is truly Irascible the Flamingo
India Pale Ale & IPA
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
