Limited edition – Nomad IPL

Nomad IPL from Eight Degrees BrewingNomad Indian Pale Lager

This beer is going nomad. An India Pale Lager – an IPL, if you will – it transgresses many stylistic boundaries with impunity, exploring and searching for unique flavours without adhering to rigid beer styles.

This isn’t your typical lager.
No.
It is not.

We have taken a clean and crisp German lager base and allowed New World hops Cascade, Nelson Sauvin and Citra to shine. With bittering levels at 54 IBUs, this is a lager that packs a punch. Free your mind from any preconceptions and let your taste buds wander into uncharted territory.

Short description: session IPL – passion fruit – full mouthfeel

Style: IPL
Hops: Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Cascade
Strength: 5% ABV
Bitterness: 54 IBUs

Tasting notes
Colour/appearance: straw-coloured in the glass.
Aroma: full passion fruit nose, underpinned with white grape.
Flavour: clean lager finish works as a canvas to show off the rounded hop bitterness and tangerine tang. Dank and fruity with a full mouthfeel.
Aftertaste: a lingering rich bitter aftertaste.

Food pairings: a fish-friendly beer that’s perfect with a well-seared fillet of hake. Try it with your Friday night Indian take out – it works especially well with a prawn balti or madras, cutting the spices and oils in those dishes and will stand up to the heat. Also perfect with a Moroccan-style spicy roast chicken.
