Full Irish – Single Malt IPA

First brewed as a once-off beer for a festival in 2014, our fans loved the Full Irish so much that we haven’t been able to stop producing it since. This single malt IPA showcases the best Irish-grown barley, malted in Cork.

It’s a hoppy fruit bomb with hints of lime, melon and lychee, a biscuity malt base and a rounded bitter-sweet aftertaste. The Full Irish has won numerous awards including a silver medal at the 2017 Dublin Beer Cup, being named Best IPA in Ireland at the 2016 World Beer Awards and Beer of the Year 2015 by independent consumer group Beoir.

Description

Hoppy fruit bomb with rounded bitterness

Style: Single malt IPA
Malt: 100% Irish pale malt
Hops: Simcoe, Cascade, Citra, Amarillo
Strength: 6.0% ABV
Bitterness: 65 IBUs

Tasting notes:
Colour/appearance: pours a pale gold colour, with lovely white head. Medium carbonation.
Aroma: lots of hops! It’s a hop bomb with citrus and floral characters, grapefruit at the fore with hints of lime, melon and lychees.
Flavour: hoppy fruit with a biscuity malt body.
Aftertaste: rounded bitterness that cleanes the palate with a lingering sweetness from the single malt, preparing the palate for the next sip.

Food pairings:
This single malt ale will pair beautifully with simple grilled fish and barbecued chicken kebabs, the sweet malt flavours working well with anything that’s been carmelised on the grill. Don’t miss an opportunity to try it with something spicier, like barbecued piri-piri prawns and it is also an exceptionally good match with smoked duck, the hops cutting through the rich meat. To finish, get a slice of carrot cake alongside a glass of this and revel in how the beer balances out the cake’s sweetness.
