COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A railway sleeper is not only a rectangular support for the rails in the railroad tracks, generally laid perpendicular to the rails. It’s also our India Pale Ale with pine influences. We figured we would brew an IPA that is not filled with tropical fruit characteristics, for a change. So we loaded this IPA full with Simcoe, Chinook, Columbus and Summit hops. And we have to say this is one darn piney IPA, it almost makes us feel like wood chucks. By the way, how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck couldn’t chuck wood? - Drink with mates!

MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, pretty soapy, very fruity, bitter touch. Aftertaste: citrus, malty, very hoppy, soapy touch, pretty bitter finish.

Keg at Cafe Beermoth, Manchester. Amber shade. Lasting white head. Herbal and tangerine hop flavours. Fruity and bitter taste. Well joined up, but nothing too attention grabbing.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2017
(LOC Sleeper) Tap at Jorisplein, Nijmegen, during the Four Days March celebrations, 250ml. Deep orange coloured body, clear, with a tall and thick white head on top. The aroma has light caramel malts and orange. Taste of oranges, tangerine, caramel malts, grass, harshily bitter finish. Medium thin body. Good.

3.3
MarcoBasile (467) - DENMARK - JUL 5, 2017
It’s describes as a ’Pine IPA’. It pours a deep orange almost brown body with a creamy off-white to beige head. Aroma is very pine forward. Pine needles, resin. Taste is light but with pine bitterness and a little citrus all throughout. Solid base of malts. Not so intensely bitter as other pine centric beers tend to be. Good thing, because I absolutely hate pine bombs. This is tolerable. Oily texture, soft to medium carbonation, light body.
