12 Beers of Christmas - Day 3
On the third day of Lynch's Irish Tavern's 12 Beers of Christmas, we are featuring the Stone Brewery Downunderstruck IPA. This unique IPA takes inspiration from the land down under, Australia, and combines it with Stone Brewery's signature craft brewing techniques.
The Downunderstruck IPA pours a beautiful golden amber color with a thick, frothy white head. The aroma is a delightful blend of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, and a touch of pine. As you take your first sip, you will be greeted with a burst of hoppy flavors, including grapefruit, orange peel, and passionfruit.
What sets this IPA apart is the addition of Australian hops, which add a distinct herbal and spicy character to the beer. The malt backbone provides a slight sweetness that balances out the hop bitterness, creating a well-rounded and complex flavor profile.
With a medium body and moderate carbonation, the Downunderstruck IPA is incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It finishes with a lingering hop bitterness that leaves you craving another sip.
Whether you are a fan of IPAs or looking to try something new, the Stone Brewery Downunderstruck IPA is a fantastic choice. Its unique combination of Australian hops and traditional brewing techniques makes for a memorable and delicious beer experience. Come on down to Lynch's Irish Tavern and give it a try - you won't be disappointed!
