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.

vtafro (6680) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Draft.amber pour with tan head. Very malty and light fruit and bread aromas. Light bittering and yes autocorrect bittering of flavor, "stale college basement". Not finishing the generous pour at the pub.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours straw colored with 0f-white minimal head. Nose is malt, spicy hops. Tastes malty, ESB-ish, with earthy malt notes, some hops, and not a lot of complexity. Comes off like a slightly hoppier and less malty Newcastle brown.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Pale and lightly toasted malts, a hint of flowery hops, and a touch of sweetness. Well balanced.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a clear dull brown with wispy white head. Smell is sweet grains, but almost a spoil hint. Taste is more sweet grain, caramel, almost no hop presence. IPA? Really? Not good.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head that left quickly. Aroma is floral/herb with a caramel backing. Suggests cola sort of. Med body. Flavor is odd. Thereís a veg/herb hop thing. Malt backing. Suggests an insecticide aroma - the kind made from flowers*. Itís not terrible, but Iíve never had anything like it. Unique flavors fer sure. (*The pyrethrins are a pair of natural organic compounds normally derived from Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium)

Bottle. Dark brown color. Smells of malt, bread and dough. Far from an IPA in my opinion but i guess this is the british version of it. Eh
