Breakfast Beer Tasting: Brixton Electric IPA

When you’re running short on time and need a lift before heading out of the door, a little IPA hit seems just the ticket. Which leads nicely into this morning’s beer adventure: Electric IPA. This Brixton Brewery effort comes packaged in a nice, eye-catching design and is described as “Inspired by Electric Avenue, the beating heart of Brixton and made with New World hops, our full-bodied IPA is packed with energy and attitude. Electric perfectly balances malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness, with a floral, citrus and tropical fruit hit.”
It’s a 330ml bottle and weighs in at 6.5%. It was very lively but eventually settled down to a cloudy orange colour with a large off-white head. The aroma was very promising; lovely hints of ripe orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple and a little pine sap. This profile continued into the easy drinking body of the beer but is supplemented by a strong presence of tangerine and some bitter lime tones. The finish is long with a cleansing and bitter citrus edge.

Tyson says: No fruit juice to go with your toast? No problem. This baby is the perfect substitute.
