tap at spider bite 1st anniversary Tap & Barrel - easily the best English IPA I’ve had in the US ... presumably because IPAs don’t survive the trip? Hard, mineral body is balanced perfectly by biting East Kent Goldings hops. Makes for a dry body with just a hint of caramel and fruit, leading into a piney, bitter, tongue-tingly finish. Well done!
