Alpha Bomb - Advent Calendar Day 3

Day 3 what will it be?

Today's selection from this year's Beer Advent Calendar is the Big Rig Brewery Alpha Bomb

It's an unfiltered IPA with 6.6% alcohol, 87 IBU

Big Rig is local, and makes at least a couple of beers that I enjoy. I've had this before in growlers, and the canned version is pretty much bang on, give or take. It's a very slightly cloudy medium orange copper colour, with a small, fairly dense beige head. The aromas are pine, creamy caramel, orange, and a little orange melon. The taste is clean and crisp with lots of hops and pine, orange, and caramel flavours.

I'm going to try this with a dinner tonight of a Pasanda (creamy coconut and peanut) Chicken Curry  and rice, and I expect it to pair quite well.
