The Series: Common Sense
Style: India Pale Ale
The strength and quality of a leader are tested many times. Joshua was challenged 31 times, and in each instance he prevailed over a different king, leading the Israelites into the promised land of Canaan. Joshua trusted in God to provide for their victory to such an extent that the passage of the moon and the sun stopped for one day so he could press the advantage over his foes.
Here at Valiant Brewing we have crafted our 31 Kings IPA trusting that it too will stop the passing of your day and cause you to wonder at its invigorating blend of hops all supported by a harmonious malt profile.
The IPA is the most popular beer style among craft beer lovers. They have an immense range of aromas and flavors. To set ours apart we focused on creating a powerful aroma that is flowery and herbal with hints of lemon and notes of passion fruit. 31 Kings has a balance of slight caramel malty sweetness that combines with an intense yet rolling bitterness profile. This also sets our IPA apart from others which focus on a punch in the face of hops rather than a harmony of bitterness and flavor. Finally, flavors of pine and orange trickle into the aftertaste allowing a clean and refreshing finish.

International Bittering Unit: 75

This immensely popular style will pair will balance out sweet or fatty foods like burgers, or some spicier cuisine such as Curry. Buffalo wings, blackened chicken, and fried seafood, go very well with the bitterness of IPA. Gorgonzola or Cambozola are fantastic cheeses to pair with IPA’s. Try some Caramel apple tart, ginger spice cake, or persimmon rice pudding.
