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.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear dark penny copper colored brew with a quick dissipating off-white head that leaves behind minimal lacing and a thin white ring. Aroma of multi-grain and caramel malt, some grassy hops and a touch of biscuit. Taste is light to medium bodied, toasted caramel malt with some biscuit character and very light grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with some vegetable notes, then a crisp and clean cut aftertaste with minimal bitterness. This beer style is closer to a light English Pale Ale than an IPA.

Bottle. Thin, off white head. Flavor is a bit skunky with earthy, grassy hop taste. Another in a growing line of seasonal disappointments from Newcastle. They should just stick with what they know.

Sample at the 2011 Fall NOVA Beerfest, 10/22/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and minty hops with a fruity finish. The taste is earthy, floral and fruity notes with a caramel malt finish. Medium bodied.
