Behemoth C’s Get Degrees (440ml Can)
This old school West Coast IPA uses a desk full of Old School American "C" hops; Cascade, Columbus, Centennial and Citra. Ok, you caught me with some notes in the exam. Citra is new world hop. but it starts with a "C" and tastes so good! Now for a little lesson in hops: A is for Alpha Acids, which makes beer bitter and delicious. B is for Beta Acids, which makes beers grapefruit-y, tropical and piney (like this one is). C is for all the C hops I just talked about that and are jam packed into this beer! Brewed for the 10th Annual West Coast IPA Challenge (2017) at the Malthouse in Wellington. If you have ever been to the Malthouse, you will know that it is where you get a real beer education. PS. C’s get degrees, but they won’t necessarily get you a job.
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.
