60 IBU

In keeping with the other two beers that made up Watts River's initial core range, this IPA goes about delivering plenty of flavour but within a tightly wound package. In part, that's due to putting the "pale" into India pale ale, stripping the malt profile right back so it's an unobtrusive partner there to provide a backbone and structure upon which the hops can go to work.

They do so with grapefruit and sweet citrus to the fore and a touch of pine in support on the aroma front. There's plenty of zesty hop flavours to tuck into before a pleasant piney bitterness rounds things off. Despite weighing in at 6.6 percent ABV, its lean and clean nature has it drinking much like a punchy pale.
