OG 1.061
An East Yorks version of the fashionable US West Coast style.
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.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Cask conditioned at Cheltenham Beer Festival ’16. Gold with white head. There is quite a resinous start to this, drying then a tangy orange peel note. Bitter but quite refreshing. Good stuff.

More an APA then an IPA. Nice and hoppy but with a characteristically English finish. Perfectly pleasant but Im not going to seek this out.

Towey1989 (1891) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, some mango, slight nuttiness, caramel, resin and subtle earthy hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange marmalade, peach, subtle apricot, caramel, resin and slight alcohol. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry but fruity, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A good APA, great marmalade, resin and malty flavours. Enjoyable but I have had better.
