I've featured an IPA before, but a farmhouse IPA is of a different variety. Farmhouse beers are typically categorized by the fact that they are brewed with a saison yeast strain. There are only a few farmhouse IPAs out there though. Flying Dog characterizes theirs as having citrus and spice qualities with a sharp hop bitterness. For me, there is something I really enjoy about saison/farmhouse ales. The special beer brewed for BFW was a farmhouse ale and obviously holds a special place in my heart.
Now for food pairings...I think you're going to like this one!
That's right, dark chocolate! Of course as most IPAs, it will pair wonderfully with spicy dishes. Let's think about having this beer as your night cap though! Flying Dog recommends pairing it with a dark chocolate, especially one made with orange peel. This will bring out the citrusy notes in the beer.
If you have one of these chocolate bars sitting around or feel like baking up some Chewy Dark Chocolate and Orange cookies, pick up this beer for your dessert!
