Beer: Anchor IPA
Style: India pale ale
Alcohol: 6.5 percent by volume
Price: About $10 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Whole Foods
Story: Talk about hoppy. Anchor Brewing Co.’s newest beer has seven varieties of hops, including one so new it’s called Experimental No. 431. South Florida is one of several markets to get a preview of Anchor IPA through May, when it joins Anchor’s year-round lineup nationwide.
Pairing: Anchor IPA’s orange-rind bitterness melds with the orange marmalade and cuts through the unctuousness of the jerk-rubbed foie gras at Ortanique in Coral Gables.
