Frenchies Coast Extra IPA

Frenchies Bistro & Brewery

Published August 1, 2019

What do you do if you want to make an IPA that bears some traits of an East Coast IPA and some traits of a West Coast IPA? You cheat, and make the IPA exactly as you want it to taste, and call it a Frenchies Coast Extra IPA.

Five hops bring the blend of flavours that make this beer the hybrid it is - a base of Columbus and Simcoe, aromatics from Centennial and Mosaic, and a flourish of Riwaka from New Zealand. There’s no real haze to speak of, but the sticky pineapple and citrus on the nose give a real feel of NEIPA.

In the mouth, flavours of grapefruit and resin lead to a dry finish more akin to a classic West Coast. The bitterness then hangs around with a hit of lime and a sense that breaking style guidelines can be a good thing.
