Eight Degrees Re-release Hurricane IPA

A hurricane is a tropical storm originating in the North Atlantic Ocean, rotating in the opposite direction to a cyclone. This IPA showcases punchy American hops – Simcoe, Citra and Mosaic – making it a fruit, lemon and pine taste bomb. Get it now while it’s Hurricane season: this Category Five brew will do more than tickle the taste buds. This was first released to rave reviews in September 2013, as part of the eight degrees “Hop Off” IPA duo. The drinking public was asked to vote on their favourite and Hurricane – despite strong opposition from the Antipodean hopped Cyclone – was the one chosen.

Malt: Irish pale ale malt, Crystal,
Hops: Simcoe, Citra Mosaic

Tasting notes:

Aroma: intense aroma of mango and passion fruit.
Flavour: the juicy tropical fruit aroma carries through to the taste buds, with strong hop
flavours of mango, stone fruit and passion fruit along with some resinous pine notes. There is a good biscuit malt backbone to balance out the aromatic hops.

Food pairings: this aromatic ale works wonders with spicy Mexican flavours. Try it with the legendary Cochinita Pibil from A Mexican Cook and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
