Runaway IPA – Cervecería Cucapá

O’hare’s Beer Club February 2013 Box

Coming from one of the First Micro Breweries out of Mexico comes the “Runaway IPA”.  The brewery is located in Mexicali, Mexico.  This IPA pours a light golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, citrus fruits and tropical fruits.  The flavour is of floral hops, bitterness, pine, cirtus and tropical fruits.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% alcohol and the IBU is 75.  I quite enjoyed this IPA and look forward to trying more from this brewery and some more Mexican micro brew in general.  Not everything coming from there has to be super light boring lager.

Commercial Description:  Brewed with our indigenous two row Mexican malt and generous amounts of hops, this IPA is a citric bomb! Using four different hop varieties we created four different citric flavors that complement each other. Tangerine, Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime blend in to create a full flavor hopped up brew. The color is golden and the body is relatively full for a beer this light in color. This is an artifact of our full flavored base malt in perfect balance with the bitterness of the hops at 75 IBU.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:  Poultry or shellfish curry
