A traditional IPA done well: bitter dry and crisp to make it extremely refreshing combined with sweet tropical fruit against a luxurious yet subtle caramel body.
Look: Five Points IPA pours a hazy golden colour with a nice slightly off white head.
Aroma: Grapefruit, peach and mango from the combination of Cascade and Galaxy hops.
Taste: We get grapefruit and pine with more subtle tropical fruit against a softly carbonated caramel body.
Food Pairing:This beer works with salty foods and is equally at home with the umami flavour of meats. So why not do both? Try it with roast chicken and rub some salt into the skin to make it extra crispy.
Verdict: A long bitter finish that makes it extremely refreshing. A classic IPA.
