Limited Edition #19: American Pale Ale
Limited Edition #19 American Pale Ale is a collaboration between Brewdog Outpost Dublin and Hope Beer. Brewdog’s Patrick Gallagher and Hope’s Richie Hamilton originally conceived this American Pale Ale to be a keg-only beer but you know why that didn’t happen. It represents Brewdog Dublin’s first collaboration.
With this beer we wanted something that was a throwback to the classic west coast U.S. IPAs of the early 2000’s, but with the alcohol dialed down a little to create a well balanced American Pale Ale style. There’s just enough sweetness from the malt body to match the bitterness and resin of the hops. Centennial and Citra do all the heavy lifting here; both hops are known for their intense grapefruit flavour and aroma. Our Pale Ale is heavily dry hopped, so the aroma is intense with a classic mix of citrus and pine.
Combines well with fried chicken wings, spicy Mexican food, BBQ and even apple and cinnamon tart.
