An English Bitter and an American IPA spied each other across the bar. The IPA was blown away by the balance and beautiful color brought by carefully selected malts. The Bitter was taken by the citrus hop punch of North west hops. Two weeks later, the LoveChild IPA was born.

IBUs 60 | Alcohol by Vol. 6.2%

A - Served a Medium to dark cloudy orange with a white head. Great retention and lacing.

S - Very sweet and malty.

T - Bitter apples, lemon. A very, very slight hop finish.

D - Bitter all around. Light body and average carbonation.

O - The English bitter over powers and IPA presence. I would call it a Bitter over an IPA, but it is not up to me.
