English IPAs are a beautiful blend of bready malt bases and spicy English hops. I really enjoy this style of beer but feel that the addition of American Oak Chips in the secondary for 2-3 weeks adds an entirely new dimension to the beer that brings it to another level.
English IPAs give you a lot of range when pairing food because of their balanced yet deep flavor profile. Curries, shellfish, light fish entrees, and fried foods are all great choices to enjoy this beer with. Whether you are using it as a supplement to cooking or enjoying with your meal the robust flavor of Wanderlust is a great compliment to your meal.
