Okay, so I totally judged this one by its cover, but Drygate Brewing’s Crossing the Rubicon IPA more than lives up to its shiny, pink promise. It’s a thing of beauty, inside and out. A real standout that’s anything but ordinary.
With it’s mango, passion fruit and citrus honey flourishes, the rich, cloudy amber beer reminds me of Beavertown’s tropical new IPA Tropigamma. It’s similarly special, and likewise, its boozy ABV (6.9%) and rich malt keep the fruity flavours in check. As does its bitter, hoppy finish. Delicious.
