Jack Straw IPA

 

Jack Straw India Pale Ale is our no holds barred tribute to hopheads. A taste explosion of fruity and spicy hops makes our IPA stand out from the norm. A true American IPA with resinous hop bitterness mated to fresh-off-the-vine hop flavors and aromas wrapped around a solid undertone of maltiness.
Hop flavors and aromas of pine, lemon, and a hint of stone fruits jump out of this fairly dry beer.

It’s a hop enthusiasts happy trip into the Lupulin Zone!

Food Pairing…
The intense hop character of Jack Straw IPA makes it a perfect choice to team up with many spicy dishes. Indian food is a natural (and historical) pairing, as is Cajun, Thai, or Mexican cuisine.

Try our IPA with a plate of hot Buffalo-style chicken wings or a pepperoni pizza, but be careful, pairing hoppy beers with spicy food usually enhances the spiciness of the food dish! The choices are endless. Jack Straw is also great with pesto dishes, pork chops, beef, Stilton cheese, or even escargot. And don’t forget dessert – you’ll be amazed by how wellthis beer pairs up with a rich carrot cake covered in cream cheese frosting. Cheers!
