IPA packed with hops starting with Maynka for bittering and then finished with a hat trick of American hops.

On cask at the Derby Beer Festival
This was the biggest disappointment of the Muirhouse beers though not the worst at the festival. Maybe it was because I was expecting an IPA and not an ESB but this did not appeal to my palate.

Aroma / Appearance - The flat rose gold body retained no head at all due to the cask. Polished gold coins, almonds, and honey were mostly sweet with no bitterness evident. I looked for a hop profile but it must have been left at the brewery.

Flavor / Palate - Honey, almonds, and golden crisps are enjoyable enough but I kept waiting for evidence of hops. The creamy mouthfeel eventually turned slightly bitter but not as much as I was expecting. If this were listed in the program as an ESB I would have given it more slack but to market it as an IPA is a trick. There’s no reason to order one unless you like mediocre half-hearted taps.
