This beer was brewed in collaboration with Amsterdam Brewery at Great Lakes on October 21st and features approximately 150kg of southern hemisphere harvest Pacifica hops, which was added in its entirety to the whirlpool of this 3500 litre batch. The Pacifica hops come from New Zealand.
Maddie tried a sip. She finished that sip. Maddie exclaimed, “WOW!” This pretty much sums up the tasting notes, but we’ll try to be more poetic below.
Bordering on a rusty sunset in colour, Life Sentence IIIPA 2016 (Southern Hemisphere) looks pretty darn cute in our 16oz Revival IPA glass. (Got the marketing mention out of the way) Aroma’s of pineapple, mango and some sweetness (cotton candy) segway into flavours of passionfruit, bazooka joe bubblegum and yellow plum on the palate… like emptying a whole pez dispenser into your mouth at once. Starts off juicy and sweet, finishes dry; very dry. If you don’t pick up any alcohol notes, you’re drinking this wrong.
Food Pairing Recommendations
Korean pulled pork on a bun from Amsterdam Brewhouse, glazed ham with pineapple, ginger biscotti, Bryden’s Curry Stirfry dish (on fries not rice).
