The perfect accompaniment to any summer day! Road Trip is an American IPA brewed with three varieties of hops from the Pacific Northwest of the US. This beer was inspired by a recent trip made by the Holgate family to the states of Washington and Oregon, which enjoy a thriving craft brewing industry.

5.5%ABV. IPA. Tapped out cloudy gold. 9ºSRM. Nose had some nice spicy minty notes. There are some nice ripe tropical fruit aroma notes, maybe papaya with that slightly malty funk. Mouthfeel is fruit nectar. Sweet, very briefly starchy with thick fruity body. Palate has solid malt suggesting barley bread, untoasted bread crusts. Hops are spicy with cilantro, light fennel, hint of wild scallion, good grassy notes with fresh pine needles and hint of sappy clinginess. Finish is medium spicy and with a slightly lingering bitter. Overall for me, it was a nice IPA ride, but falling short of being memorable. Good job, Holgate! Keep those zinger’s coming. There certainly isn’t anything wrong with your grain bill.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Malty and overly yeasty nose, peach, mild grapefruit. Hazy orange/amber color, frothy head. Blend of hops, some caramel, some citrus. Hopping gets rude and scratchy from mid palate onwards. Medium body, quite fizzy. A bit rough around the edges. No date, but maybe this one is past its prime?

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Very well balanced, pours a nice light amber colour with a light hop aroma. Relly smooth mouth feel with a nice firm bitterness. Could use a little bit more in aroma but otherwise is an absolute cracker!

Solid tasting ipa. Pours a nice creamy head that slowly dissipates. Nice golden orange colour. Well balanced bitterness that leaves you wanting that next mouthful

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2016
330ml bottle into shaker. ABV 6%. Nose has pepper, stonefruit, grass. Hazy golden amber beer with sudsy white head. Many fine bubbles. Mineral water freshness is followed by subdued hop finish. Bitter lemon at first then a little cashew sweetness later on. Excellent beer for a sultry summer night.

A bit mild on the hops (US NW standards), but solid IPA. Pours out with nice creamy head, aroma equal parts hops and malt. Taste is a bit sharper, piney resinous hops at the finish
