Tropical, piney, hop-forward, with a clean, dry finish. Medium-bodied, refreshing and palate-cleansing, our IPA straddles the line between east and west coast styles, with a tropical fruity nose and juicy hop flavour. Pearson Express IPA pairs well with bar snacks such as nachos and chicken tacos, spicy dishes like hot wings.
