This American IPA is a blend of three hop varieties which give it its characteristic bold hoppy aromas. It is smooth and full of flavour with a rich malty character, spicy notes and a long finish. Brewed and bottled by Tap Room Brewing Company, Rochester, New York.

Feines, im Sinne einen klassichen amerikanisches IPAs mit viel Hopfen und Frucht. Dazu etwas Zitrone und ein bisschen Kuchen in der Nase. Feine Sache mit perfkt abgestimmten Stärke nebst Süffigkeit. Top.

Bottle from Sainsburys in Eastbourne. The beer pours out in a deep golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and flowers. Taste of hops, straw, dust, flowers, herbs and mild spices. Grainy hints. Drinkable, yet I expected it better.

flying_pig (943) - SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2014
355ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Glasgow (£1.90):
Weak on the nose with some biscuit malts & hints of citrus. Faint hops & touches of bitterness follow but the aroma of this one is pretty basic and unexciting.
Clear, medium amber with a large, 4cm, foamy & slightly off-white head that has some bubbles in it. It holds for about 45 seconds then settles at about quarter the original size.
Some bitterness & biscuit flavours followed by subtle hops & hints of spice. Towards the end I thought I could detect the odd off-flavour but the taste was at least a slight improvement on the nose.
Medium bodied & bitter with a slight fizz, medium carbonation & smooth mouthfeel. The beer was quite easy to drink but the bitterness did seem a little strong and unbalanced, particularly towards the end of the beer.

Quite a poor beer, I should have known better than to pick this one up, especially considering it worked out more expensive than a lot of better, well-known craft beers Sainsbury’s was also selling. Not a beer I’ll be picking up again.

Beese (1784) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
