Craft beer maker BrewDog has created an 8.5% ABV double India pale ale called Native Son, which will be available in the UK.
The ale combines Columbus, Chinook, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Centennial hops, cultivating a taste of citrus peel, pine dust and juicy fruit, according to the brand.
Native Son was released by the brand in its network of bars during various trial runs last year, and was well-received by craft beer enthusiasts.
The recipe for Native Son was developed by the brand’s head of production Jason Pond, the second recipe he has developed since joining the brand last year.
In a statement, BrewDog said: “Once he (Pond) was on the ground in Aberdeenshire he was tasked with brewing a beer that he would want to drink above all others, to showcase everything he loved about craft beer into something that would get us talking.
“Being a proud son of Colorado, he put together a hop-heavy American IPA.
“Of course, that beer blew us away and we did the only thing we could – add it to our regular lineup.”
The drink is now available from the brand’s online store in 330ml cans, and the beer will also be released on draft throughout Brewdog’s network of UK bars from 15 February.
