Fresh Hop IPA Tapped by Pete Brown, the first keg of this year’s Fresh Hop IPA. We fired up the pilot brew plant using 7.5kg of fresh hop cones throughout the process. They went in the mash, they went in the kettle and then the mash tun was cleared out and turned into a giant hop back! Fresh Hop IPA is only available in our shop to Growler customers and those having a pint in our beer garden. Check it out while it lasts. (A big thanks to all of you that donated your time and hops to brew this special harvest beer. You can check out some of the pictures on facebook)

On tap at the brewery. A dark, glossy, magohany pour with a tight off-white head; the aroma is vinous with a trace of chocolate; the taste is similar - rich fruit cake and a dash of drinking chocolate; then a long piney bitterness. A satisfying and well made beer that hides its alcohol well.

CraftBeerNick (1969) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Keg at Brewery Tap, 21st December 2012, pours jet black, aroma is hop and some cocoa, taste is smooth, lots of malt, some coffee and chocolate, less of hoppy black IPA than I expected, drinks below its ABV.
