For Sacramento Beer Week we wanted to do something special with our friends at Bike Dog Brewing, so why not drop a multi-batch IPA collab? “Brite Lights/Fog City” is really two beers, one hazy and one filtered, whose base recipe was built around the experimental Sabro hop. We brewed the filtered version here in San Diego at our 4S Ranch Brewpub and headed north to make the hazy version at Bike Dog.
Both showcase the citrusy, tropical flavors you know and love from west coast hop bombs, but with a light malt profile and a crisp clean finish.
Richer seafood (salmon, ahi), cream/cheese sauces, Blue/Gorgonzola cheeses, and citrus flavors (grapefruit, tangerine).
