This week I settled in for #ONBeerChat with the new Spearhead India White Ale - their most recent release which is a marriage of IPA and German Hefeweissen.
It definitely resembled the Hefeweissen in both taste and aroma, pouring a cloudy straw color with a nice white head to top it off with aromas of citrus and bread.
Then came the IPA - the bitterness was unexpected - even if I knew it was coming, I was still fooled by the Hefeweissen characteristics. The level of bitterness from the hops will definitely appeal to IPA lovers, and the Hefeweissen returns at the end - offering sweet mango and orange peel notes, which become more apparent as the beer site.
Overall a great summer beer - highlighting both beer styles quite well!
Until next week...Cheers!
