Sex & Candy tasting notes
Sex & Candy is an IPA by 18th Street Brewery brewed with Chinook and Falconer Flight hops. It is a classical take on an IPA with citric and tropical aromas. Taste is bitter and hoppy, powerful and refreshing.
– Modern IPA's are decidedly hoppy and bitter, with strong hoppy and floral aromas, specially from American hops such as Citrus and Mosaic.
– Some versions are dry-hopped to get an even more intense aroma.
– Its color ranges from medium-gold to amber and even to dark brown and black in the case of Black IPA's.
– The body is medium-light and the ABV is not very high, in the range of 5 to 7,5% ABV.
– The English styles have a more sweet character derived of the malts used (giving them a caramel, bread, and toast touch).
