The brewers of Sibeeria have teamed up with their Polish counterparts of Browar Pinta for this fierce West Coast IPA. We don’t use the word "heavy" lightly, but the hopped collaboration packs at least 100 bitterness units, and probably a little more, according to its makers. A conventional pilsner, which is considered quite bitter in the context of other types of beer, has an average of around 25 to 45 bitterness units. Responsible for the beer’s crisp bitterness is a fine selection of American and New Zealand hop varieties, processed in generous quantities.
The brew is called It’s Gotta Be Something and it definitely is something. Something that scores with clean, dry bitterness and hops in abundance. The aim of the collaboration was to catapult the traditional Czech art of brewing into the present using modern hopping methods. The result is a beer with a stable base and enough body to carry the heavy bitterness. In addition to the bitterness, the hops also provide a fruity bouquet of sun-kissed oranges, tangy lime, juicy honeydew melon and exotic lychee. The fruit defies the bitterness and balances it with fine sweetness and playful aromas.
If you fancy a real hop smack, you’ll have a lot of fun with pintas and sibeerias It’s Gotta Be Something!
