Beer Pairing: Double IPA
With this dish’s char, lime, and citrus, only a double IPA, amped up to a mouthwatering tang, will do. Properly made, not only do IPAs and Double IPAs have their own citrus-grove-like tang that works well with actual citrus flavors, their herbal components tend to bring out the fiery dimensions in other dishes. Meanwhile, most have some residual sweetness to balance it all out, which can echo the umami and sweetness of medium-rare beef. Our pick: Green Flash’s Road Warrior out of San Diego, CA.
