Profile

Smell

Big tropical fruit aroma mostly muddled together, but you’ll be able to pick out some pineapple and citrus zest. The hops are mild on the nose, slightly piney and earthy but letting the fruit do the talking.

Taste

The fruit leans back on the palate, letting all the elements come together into a milder IPA taste. The sweetness is very faint which lets it balance with the mild hops well. Slightly fruity and leafy, with a smooth body and a taste that stays perfectly level the whole way through.

Pairing

Dig into some BBQ that has a touch of fat on it for a perfect pairing.

Sight

Pours a light golden colour with a hazy body and low carbonation. A thin layer of small bubbles rests on top of the pour.

Description

Westbrook Brewing began in the mind of Edward Westbrook during a trip to Cologne, Germany. Tasting beers that he'd never come across before, he was shocked by the quality, variety, and flavour that had never touched his palate until that moment. Returning home, he began hunting for craft beer and when his search only brought a handful of beers to the surface he decided it was time to make his own. Brewing dozens of beers at the same time, juggling a pocket brewery and grad school, Westbrook discovered that his passion was for clear water, quality malt, and tasty hops. So in 2012 the passion became real and Westbrook Brewing started putting out cans that caught the attention of beer lovers in South Carolina and abroad. The Santa Claw NEIPA is a Christmas release that delivers fruity aromas and a wild hop ride each year. Serves well at 8°C and should be enjoyed soonish.
