Six String Electric Feel: West Coast IPA

Style
West Coast IPA
ABV
7.2%
Bitterness
72 IBU

It's been a fine few weeks for Central Coast's Six String Brewing. They claimed an AIBA trophy for their Coastie lager and followed that with Best In Show for their stand at GABS Sydney. Now, aiming to show that good things do come in threes, they've launched their Electric Feel series, which will also come in threes – three beers designed to showcase what brewers can achieve with Cryo Hops, a form of hops designed to deliver intense flavours and aromas.

First up, they're doing so with a West Coast IPA featuring classic US hops Centennial and Simcoe, which in Cryo form emit an aroma that belies the beer's ABV, coming across much like a dank double IPA 10 percenter. Intense pine and resin appear hand-in-hand with a splash of freshly squeezed grapefruit – “she gonna teach me how to swim.”

The light malt base promotes a clean, almost sweet bitterness, showcasing those Cryo hops – all citrus, hints of stone fruit and that pine finish – “Plug it in, change the world.”
