Pirate Life IIPAPirate Life Brewing
Pirate Life’s IIPA (Imperial India Pale Ale) comes in a 500ml can and comes on like a freight train, bursting with citrus aromas and belting you in the back palate with hop bitterness. Fortunately all that action is balanced by a strong hop base and what they call “fun juice”; that is, alcohol. The IIPA is 8.8 per cent alcohol by volume. It is a lot, but it adds an important rounding quality to the beer.
