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!

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.

330 ml. bottle @ home. BBF 02/2018. Bottle says drink fresh but that isn’t all that easy if you don’t know the bottling date. Darker amber orange, off-white low tanned big bubble creamy white. Nose is hugely fruity, huge oily fruity grapefruit peel finishing with syrupy caramel & sticky pine resin, big hop, base oily sweetness. Taste is dry bitter orange peel, pleasantly warming finish, big creamy caramel, toffee, orange peel base, lingering bitter almost medicinal pine resin & orange peel, some bitter sprouting grains in the back. Very bitter in a good way. Creamy oily caramel malt base. This really hit the spot, just what I wanted, beautifully executed old school Pine Resin IPA with great caramel malt base. Works perfectly. I have been into these guys for a while & they deserve more recognition.

Geproefd met Roelzie1986, Inoven en Benzai bij het Brabants Bier festival in Oirschot. Het is een lekkere Ipa, heerlijk fris met een vleugje dennen geur en tropisch fruit.
