In the wide and frothy world of India (IPA) and American (APA) pale ales, there are two dominant trends – ales brewed with a single variety of hop, and ales, whose aroma and a bouquet of flavors are made up of several varieties. Where ales brewed with a single hop introduce the typical traits of a specific variety, ales made with several hops offer a skillful brewer the chance to epitomize his idea of the ideal ale. While Kokmuiža Trīs čiekuri (Three Cones) is intended to exemplify American Pale Ales (APA), its name alludes to the presence of three varieties of hops.
Along with three types of malts, the ale is brewed with three varieties of hops, which are leading lights of the American craft beer revolution, ‘Cascade’, ‘Simcoe’, whose popularity has soared in recent years, and quintessentially bitter ‘Magnum’. Both ‘Cascade’ and ‘Simcoe’ are also used in dry hopping. Gradually dwindling foam gives way to a hazy amber ale, whose aroma hints at pears conditioned in malt and tropical notes. When it comes to the flavor, a blend of papaya and grapefruit is offset by an unobtrusive grassy bitterness, which endures in an enduring and balanced aftertaste.
It tastes the same — grassy bitter with a peppery grapefruit accent! It will be well served with burgers, as well as spicy, salted and fried foods — a holiday oasis at the very beginning of the week! The best bouquet of taste will be revealed by enjoying it from Kokmuiža Ale brewery glass.
