They’ve done a lot of IPAs over the years, have the brewers at Batch: nitro, lactose, grapefruit, mango, double, black, white, smoked, session – if it’s doable, they’ve probably done it. But over all that time and all those IPAs, the only one they’ve kept coming back to is this.
Batch’s West Coast IPA takes its inspiration from the West Coast of the brewery founders’ native USA and aims to be a faithful representation of the style, albeit at the lighter end of the scale. You can thus expect plenty of action on the hop front as Mosaic, Centennial and Chinook hops come together in an ordered melee of tropical fruit character with a touch of sweetness and a clean finish. This is neither a show stopper nor a palate wrecker, just a punchy beer that’s been well made and made to be drunk fresh.
