IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

Poured bright orange amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and soft pine. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, moderately sweet tropical fruit, lightly bitter. Very nicely balanced.

sound67 (463) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2015
Maker: Tempest Brewing, Tweedbank, England *** Beer: Tempest Brave New World (keg at OX 184, Edinburgh) *** Style: India Pale Ale *** ALC.VOL.: 7.4% *** Colour: Bright golden yellow, clear, no head. *** Nose: Grapefruit, yeast, some herbs. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery, but not oily. Moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Intense Grapefruit and pinewood at the start, creating a nice tension between fruity and dry, resinous notes. Medicinal notes and herbs come into play as well. Resinous note gets stronger in the middle, overwhelming the fruit. Slight numbness of the tongue. Resin keeps going, finale is dry, bitter, hoppy, with a lemon note. Resin, hoppy bitterness and the remnants of fruit in the aftertaste. *** Impressions: Rock solid American style pale ale with aggressive, resinous hops and enough fruitiness for balance. High ABV almost unnoticeable. Good.

Bottle from Oddbins. (£2.40) Another good beer from Tempest. First, a big - almost overwhelming - sweet hit followed by a touch of bitterness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle sample @ English evening tasting at Malt Attacks, Brussels. Bouteille 50cl, BB 25/07/2015. Petit clin d’œil à Huxley et Bernard Marx ou alors à Shakespeare’s Tempest. Couleur légèrement orangée, col fin blanc crémeux. Arôme offre e suite un bouquet très anglais avec cette impression de foin/fourrage, sorte de cave et venant certainement de la levure. Retrouve le bouquet essentiel d’une ale anglaise au rétro-nasal de houblons nobles anglais. Palais reste pareil à l’arôme. Un côté très anglais tirant sur le Fuggles ou EKG et un léger coté agrumes. Le tout est sec et terreux sur un fini levure prononcé. Malt reste dans un style pâle, Marris. Pour moi, la bouteille, malgré sa date, semble un peu passée.

29.7.2014. Exotic fruits, esp pineapple, pine, tangerine in aroma. Taste has malty backbone with plenty of hops. Pine and bitter, bitter finish with caramel malts, turning into dryish end.
