Saltaire XS Imperial IPA 9.5%

saltaire xs, imperial ipa

This is an unashamedly old school imperial IPA.

It pours golden in the glass with a small slightly off-white head with lovely aromas of citrus, pine and just a hint of pineapple.

To taste you get grapefruit and orange marmalade with lots of booziness, set against a backbone of slightly sweet toffee and dried fruit.

Food pairing

The beer sits slightly toward the sweeter end of the spectrum for a strong IPA.

Try serving it with sticky, sweet jerk chicken. The hops will cut right through any grease, while the spices accentuate the booziness of the beer.

Win-win.
