So, What could possibly go wrong? It’s a birthday beer, so not much I imagine.
Lovely green hop aroma on this as you open it, on a rich undertone of sweetness.
Lovely golden gold colour with a lovely white white head that is large and fluffy and bright. Aroma in the glass is of beer that’s hoppy and fruity.
That’s jolly pleasant and lovely. A big burst of bitterness that is carried on a really soft middle and a finish that’s a kiss of dry, with a lovely lingering mouthfeel. That’s a proper party that is.
This has a lot of nice things going for it, the bitterness might be slightly peaky and all the front but what follows is rather nice.
particularly that lovely tropical fruit thing, today I’m picking Mango, since that would be a thing I can think of. I don’t get anything that suggests grapefruit, but it could be there.
If I was as an esteemed a venue as Pomeroy’s and someone made me a beer like this I’d be well chuffed. Happy Birthday, and congratulations to both parties.Beer like this makes it all a bit worthwhile
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. All that nice chit chat and then you mark it as “very good”. Well yes it is very good, and should sell in the big numbers if it’s available, I doubt it’ll be around long. This is a really nice go-to beer, it’s easy to drink has a bag of flavour and character. It’s not pretending to be something extraordinary but it’s above ordinary.

India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
