Swannay Orkney IPA
Brewed by Swannay Brewery
Orkney, Swannay by Evie, Scotland
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 81 | Alcohol: 4.8%
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Appearance: Pale and golden - but not too pale as to look like lager.
Nose: Lemony citrus hops with a hint of grapefruit and spicy, peppery goldings.
Palate: Full on hops – styrian goldings to the fore, goldings giving a balanced middle and finally the rich malty fullness of maris otter as a backbone. The finish is refreshing with hops that become dryer if the cask lasts long enough!
Summary: A modern IPA, not overly bitter but still nicely ‘hoppy’ and at 4.8%, just about a session IPA for a sensible night’s drinking. The hop profile is nothing short of stunning.
