Tropical IPA with Refreshing Juicy Citrus Notes
Ya know when the breeze is just right, that band playing way across the cove sounds like they’re right next-door? Same goes for these citrus flavors tasting like freshly-squeezed pineapples, mango and passion fruit – only they’re all notes carried by hops. Juicy & light, not bitter. These beats just hit different.
Beer math on ABV is pretty straightforward. The higher the ABV, the more alcohol in the beer. See, no rocket science necessary.
Generally speaking, a high IBU beer will have a more bitter taste than a lower IBU beer.
The OG measures solids in the wort before fermentation to consistently arrive at the same alcohol conetent of a beer. Pretty neat, huh?
To balance out the fruity hop bill we opted for creamier, smoother malts to make for your smoothest transition to the tropics.
TROPICAL HOP BLEND
We tapped our Yakima hop grower friends to give us the most tropical hops and combined ’em in Island Beats. The result is a huge wave of tropical flavors and aromas in your face.
Fruit without Fruit
Freshly-squeezed pineapples, guavas, mangoes, passion fruit, jabuticaba… those are just a taste of what you’ll find when you try Island Beats, but don’t be fooled… it’s purely from the hops! It’s got all of the fruit, with none of the fruit!
