After launching its Couch Select Lager in 12 oz cans a few years back, Burnside Brewing has now added its IPA to its lineup of beers available in convenient aluminum cans. Packaged in charcoal and yellow labeled 12 oz cans, Burnside IPA should be arriving in select Safeway and Fred Meyers stores throughout the state of Oregon.
“Our IPA has been our best seller in the Pub since day one and we’re excited to offer our time tested IPA recipe in a new package,” says co-founder Jay Gilbert in a press release. “Cans are absolutely the best vehicle for this beer, as they deliver all the fresh piney/citrusy aromatics that Burnside IPA was designed for.”
Burnside Brewing’s India Pale Ale begins with a complex specialty malt backbone, and then is thoroughly hopped with 6 varieties of the herbaceous perennial Burnside loves. Four separate hop inclusions in the kettle, plus additional dry hopping provides the notes of pine and citrus that shine throughout. Burnside IPA, as all Burnside Ales, is unfiltered. This required an increased time commitment, but pays dividends in the depth, character, and flavor profile of their brews. 6.6% ABV 84 IBUs.
