Belgian Coast IPA & Carrot Cake-Salted Butterscotch Ice Cream Sandwich

The Players

Belgian Coast IPA is a collaboration between Green Flash Brewing and Brewery St-Feuillien. This Belgian-style IPA is highly fragrant with floral twinges, very hoppy nose with a slight fruity note. It has a powerful IPA taste that is characterized by a very intense bitterness and that classic Belgian wang.

The carrot cake is a gluten-free, homemade (thanks Vida), and the salted butterscotch ice cream is from Tillamook Creamery. The cake is just sweet enough and ice cream is salty.

The Pairing

The sweet & salty character of the dessert contrasts the hoppiness of the Belgian Coast IPA with the creaminess of the ice cream calming the party down. This pairing is tremendous and luxurious.
