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.

sound67 (512) - 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.
