Our trial take on the ’winter warmer’. An East Yorks version of the fashionable US West Coast hop-forward IPA. Bitterness is balanced by malt sweetness in our IPA and dry-hopping rounds out the aroma. Three hop types in this one, to justify the ’sunshine-in-a-glass’ claim. Just what you need to brighten a grey winter day!

A really enjoyable pint(s) at the Southern in Edinburgh. Full of flavour and still quite drinkable. Not a winter warmer, really, but tasty nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
