Draught keg at Mother Kelly’s. Had this a few times before & always liked the heaviness of malts/alcohol being well matched with a hefty dose of hoppiness, but its definitely on outstanding form here today.

Keg at Mother Kelly’s. Massive fan of this beer and can’t believe I’ve never rated it! Byway this batch is the best yet. Full bore hop vegetal madness, tobaccoesque bite and bitter with depth. Don’t sleep.
