Our MAD IPA is a sessionable, hoppy beer, with lots of tropical fruit and citrus flavours, that’s been brewed especially to go with barbecue food.

Tasting notes
Colour/appearance: light cloudy haze. Fine white mousse. Medium carbonation.
Aroma: lime and pineapple on the nose, underpined with melon skin.
Flavour: this tasting was done on a Friday evening and had our brewers waxing lyrical:

It’s light and bright
The mousse is tight
Drink it all night
It feels alright.

I didn’t feel that I needed to add much else.

Aftertaste: a light bitter finish.

Food pairings
A perfect barbecue beer. Pair with The Big Grill, a sunny day, sunglasses and skewered roasted chicken hearts. Will also go beautifully with a grilled Picanha steak from John Relihan, Ramael Scully’s smoked goat, Kai’s VeganAsFu%k BBQ, smoked Irish trout from Mark O’Brien and Jack May’s red pepper lamb tomahawk.
