Every now and then I like to pair my craft beer with music. I know most folks are pairing beer with food, and that’s fantastic. But I’m not a certified cicerone yet, so I will stick to music for now. I’m a fan of redheads… and red IPAs too. So for this pairing, I suggest Hop Head Red, The Girl U Want!
Red India Pale Ale – 7% ABV – 70 IBU
Resinous hop characteristics emerge from an enormous hopping with Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo overtaking the rich caramel malt base. To add luscious hop flavors and enticingly floral hop aromas, we dry-hop the brew with bucket loads of Amarillo hops. Welcome to the world of Red IPA.
Devo – Girl U Want – (ukulele version)
Try them together and see if you agree.
Cheers to craft beer!
