Flower Business Double IPA
Steady Hand Beer Co., Atlanta
Available on draft and in 4-pack cans.
Steady Hand describes Flower Business as “hazy orange in color”with a “bright, juicy, hop flavor” and “notes of fresh-squeezed citrus, tropical fruit, sweet peach, and subtle pine.”
Most of that flavor and complexity is produced through a combination of classic American hops, including Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe. At 9-percent alcohol, it’s a surprisingly easy to drink double IPA, with a smooth, slightly sweet malt character, and an easygoing, balanced bitterness that invites another sip.
With an abundance of alcohol and hops, big, bold double IPA isn’t exactly a food-friendly style. But since Flower Business drinks more like a single IPA, many of the recommended pairings, including charcuterie, sausages, and barbecue, will work. And this time of year, I’d think about drinking it with a hunk of salty, funky Stilton.
