Tap at Popeye. Was just calle Brimmer IPA, but definitely more English IPA style than American, so I guess it’s this one. Amber coloured, small golden head. Aroma malty, bit of hops, but not so much. Mildly fruity too. Taste is nice enough, slight fruit, marmalade, malty. Toasty. Marmalade on toast. Nice enough.

Good solid beer -this seems to be the Brimmer style. Not overflowing with flavour, this a refined, moderately hoppy, well balanced tipple. Some marmalade, grassy hops and a nice malt backbone. Easy to quaff.

Draught at Devil Craft. Nice copper color with a low head. Spicy, grassy nose. Nicely spicy flavor, cinnamon, some caramel, grass, earth, light citrus and pepper. Very smooth with great balance and character. Very interesting spiciness coming from the hops. Very likeable and complex beer.
