Dixie Clipper IPA

Flying Boats Brewing


This is a well-balanced IPA that uses a blend of Chinook and Cascade hops for bittering, flavour and aroma to profile the distinct spicy and pine characteristics with a subtle grapefruit finish enhanced by a dry hop.
6.5% ABV and 68 IBUs.

The story behind the name: Pan American Airways had a weekly flight from New York to Shediac then to Europe, starting from 1939 and suspended by the outbreak of WW2. Many celebrities used this service to get to Europe by air. The plane for this service was the Boeing 314 Clipper flying boat. American President Franklin D. Roosevelt used the same type of aircraft to get to Europe during WW2 and landed in Shediac; this was to become the first presidential aircraft – Air Force One – and was called Dixie Clipper.
