This morning we’re moving on from Pale Ale to try this locally produced IPA. No guesses as to what, or rather who, inspired this, as the label is pretty self-evident. It’s a 5.5% brew and comes in the standard 500ml bottle-conditioned form that RCB prefers.
It poured light amber with good carbonation and a neatly formed off-white head. The aroma was a little malt and some berried fruits. The body itself wasn’t particularly heavy given the strength. There was a biscuit malt backbone with a leading tart edge of fruitiness that developed into a dry finish.
An old-school IPA that may appeal to those who like their beers on the traditionally sharp side, rather than a modern hop bomb.
