Mismatch Brewing West Coast IPA

Style
West Coast IPA
ABV
6.4%

Over the years, Mismatch have ventured far and wide within the broad style category that is IPA: from hazies, reds, oat creams, New England, white, triples. Here, it appears they thought it was about time the good old West Coast had its time in the limelight, building a base of pale malt with a touch of light crystal and wheat upon which American Simcoe, Strata and Centennial hops balance the sweetness with a West Coast style bitterness.

The 6.4 percent ABV IPA pours a burnt orange colour, with orange citrus announcing itself on the nose – like sweet, candied orange peel – alongside a smidgen of resin. Upon the first sip, it's evident this West Coast is a playful work of art, a balancing act between the sweet crystal malt, that orange citrus, a little pine and a solid bitterness. None of the elements really stand out, instead playing together to create a marriage of ingredients that ensures this is another approachable addition to the Mismatch story.
