We’ve established in the past that we’re really bunch of hop heads here in Smith’s Parish, Bermuda but an IPA doesn’t really have any ties Bermuda. So how can we try to make a uniquely Bermuda IPA? Maybe by going pink, after all pink is the official color of Bermuda! I’ve seen some pink beers in the past, mostly using raspberries, but in this case I wanted to tap another local Bermuda resource, hibiscus flowers! Hibiscus flowers can be in both cooking and brewing and they exist all over this beautiful island! These flowers are so ever present in Bermuda they are even featured on the currency here.
We’re really bunch of hop heads here in Smith’s Parish, Bermuda. With that I’ve have had a great time experimenting with IPAs over the last two years. The Good Evening IPA is our recipe for a solid, bold IPA that stands up to other great IPAs like one of our all time favorites Bell’s Two Hearted.
Let’ she honest, there is nothing particularly inspired by Bermuda in this IPA. However, it’s name does follow the convention of greeting everyone you meet on the island. This is a great evening beer for the spring or fall with a solid hop profile at 56 IBU and 6.4% ABV. This is the most popular beer we brew and is a favorite among everyone. Needless to say this is a very mature recipe as we brew this beer more than any other! And yes, we have a Good Morning Session IPA and a Good Afternoon Pale Ale.
