Epic Shotgun XPA

Style

Pale Ale

Brewed In

Auckland

What to expect:

Lemon citrus, quenching and moreish

Judges Comments:

From a brewery famed for their hoppy beers, this is lemon bright with a hint of sweetness. It has a soft mouthfeel, a quenching citrus flavour and finishes bone dry. As a style XPA – for extra pale ale – is open to interpretation but it generally means lighter malts (more like a lager), lower ABV (4.8 percent here) and a relatively heavy hand on the hops. The judges loved the way this delivered flavours of lemongrass and melon in a quenching fashion. “Moreish beer”, they wrote.

Pairing Recommendation:

The nature of XPA is to be light and dry with some hoppy kick. The airiness of this beer wants some sweet and sticky to fight against such foods; try sweet and sour pork or sticky ribs.
