How hoppy can we make an ale? Here’s your answer. Three and a half grams of west coast Chinook hops per PINT!

Plus exotique que la Citra, plus de longueur et plus puissante. Goûtée au fût.

I really like the variety that London’s new Brodie’s Brewery has to offer. I decided on the Californian IPA, where they boast, "How hoppy can we make an ale? Here’s your answer. Three and a half grams of west coast Chinook hops per PINT!" A - Pours a hazy golden orange with what looks like medium carbonation and a nice creamy but thin head. S - Orange zest, west coast hops, nice sweet malt balance ,and some grass T - Pine, orange peel (bitter orange), hops and the sweet malty backbone comes through in the nicely balanced sweet adn clean aftertaste. M &D - Smooth and very nice and creamy texture. Lovely carbonation with small but lively bubbles. Drinkable enough but plenty of other IPA’s I would rather drink more of. Very nice offering from a small young brewery which I will be checking out more of in the future.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Cask@the Bodega, Newcastle upon Tyne. Golden looks with a medium creamy white head. Promising nose packed full of fragrant hop and citrus, as was the gently sweet flavour which showed off the chinook to great effect. Very drinkable with decent body and a very tidy bitter finish. Well worth a look.

[cask at the King William IV, Leyton] Amber ale with a thin head. Nice and citrusy nose, and on the taste too. Pretty refreshing. The finish is long and dry, but not too sharp. Decent, hoppy beer [20092011]
