COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zesty in character and jam-packed with a creamy finish, the Newcastle Winter IPA is full-bodied and hoppy, delivering unique and authentic malt flavors for the cold season and snowy matchdays.

not too hoppy at all. Maybe even some slight chocolate taste in there? probably the best IPA ive ever had... and I don’t like IPAs... but tasted it when I was sick so...

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2012
A nice copper red hued dark gold brew with a very thin white head. The nose is light with some dusty bread and a little bit of apple. Hints of caramel. This tastes like metallic caramel with some apple. There is also some peanut character. Overall, a little boring, but not bad.

zimbo (612) - SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Rough off light nose. Light clear browny colour.Light nut followed by some empty nutty malt elements but still very thin & with some responses in the end. But it really lacks character & interest.

12/29/12. 12oz bottle. Clear amber red pour with a small off-white head that fades to a soapy nothingness immediately. Faint caramel aroma with metal and tea. Plain apple flavor with caramel and must. Blegh.

Pershing (477) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Clear amber with almost no head to speak of. Toasted malt aroma with some bread. Thin watery mouthfeel with hardly no visual carbonation. Crisp clean finish. Another weak brew from Newcastle.
