Lighthouse Brewing Co. – Switchback IPA Review

Mountain bikers like beer and Lighthouse has played off that theme for the Switchback IPA. With a strong 80-count IBU rating this Pacific Northwest style IPA has a strong flavour with a touch of pine in the after-notes. While the IBU rating is sky-high, the taste is great and the beer goes down quite smooth. This is not for the beer-naive but can be easily appreciated by someone open to a stronger and more bitter-tasting beer. If you like beer and are adventurous when it comes to hop – give it a try, you will like this one!

Alcohol – 6.5%
Size – 6 x 355ml
Price – $12.25 (BCL)
