The American Staffordshire Double IPA is a strong, no nonsense hop-forward beer. This beer limits malt character in favor of pushing the hop citrus characteristics of the classic four “C”s: Columbus, Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook. Late hop additions provide a pleasant aroma and there is sufficient alcohol content to create a balanced beer. This beer pairs well with cured meat like charcuterie, bacon, and ham; slow cooked, smokey barbeque ribs or pulled pork; spicy Szechuan Chinese or Indian curry dishes. Be surprised and try this beer with a salty, sweet dessert like salted caramel chocolate or ice cream.
