Lift Bridge Brewing Company
ABV: 7.5%, IBU: 70 IBU
With a nose in the glass, we were welcomed with huge piney fruit scents, apricots, and a minor floral aroma. Lift Bridge Hop Dish IPA is rich copper in color. On the tongue Hop Dish is bold with a degree of sweetness up front followed by a welcomed, long-lasting-piney, lingering after-hang. Subtle hints of molasses and grapefruit are also apparent. As the beer warms it grows bigger but less sharp…almost grassy without loss of any bitterness. Brewed with a variety of seven different hops, this one is a real mouthful. Food pairing: Mexican cuisine and/or something spicy, perhaps Andouille sausage.
