S:t Eriks och Thornbridge är båda kända för sina tolkningar av modern amerikansk IPA-stil, men här har man i stället bestämt sig för att göra ”en modern tolkning av engelsk IPA, jäst med äkta nordengelsk jäst och genomgående brittisk humle för en unik och komplex fruktighet – en hyllning till allt bra hos en IPA.” Årets kollaboration är ljust bärnstensfärgad med en alkoholstyrka på 7,4 %, bitter-, smak-, arom och torrhumlad med bästa engelska East Kent Golding humle till ett IBU på cirka 75. Jäststammen är av äkta West Yorkshire-typ med en fruktighet som fungerar särskilt bra ihop med humlesorterna. Trots höga IBU så är beskan fantastiskt mjuk.

Malty, fruity taste with apricots, orange peel, mandarin, sweetish syrupy malt, caramel, honey and a balanced resiny, floral bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well made IPA with lots of EKG character. Good balance. Nice one.

Cunningham (6948) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Appearance: Golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. A bit sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Citric hoppy, rich pineapple and a fine malty back.
Overall impression: Not very typical British IPA. And nothing wrong with that. Just a bit to sweet.
Personal stats: Bottle Roberth bought at Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden
