This release in our Six Tastes IPA series explores the spicy flavor sensation, which we set out to do by creating a gap in the visual, aromatic, and flavor perception of this beer by juxtaposing it against tropical hop character and malt sweetness.
To accomplish this we used two ingredients known for their spicy nature: red chili peppers and Sichuan pepper. The balance of Sichuan pepper was arranged to pick up on its ever so slight citrus-like character without providing too much of the tongue-numbing sensation that it is famous for. Red chilis provide an overall impression of spiciness that contrasts the tropical contribution from the hops, which were selected for their fruity nature (Citra, Ekuanot, Sabro, and Talus). The final product is anything but one dimensional and a perfect complement to a wide variety of foods on izakaya menus.
