COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg; Special.
Rob and Renn brewed Bleeding Hops IPA (6.4% ABV). Don’t expect a pale brew with this one. This beer is stained blood red through the use of aromatic malt (or maybe through the bloodied lupulin sacrifice of so many hops…), a base that harks back to old recipes, which is then flipped over with the use of modern hops: Simcoe and Motueka were in the kettle and whirlpool, then we transferred it to condition on lots and lots of different dry-hops: Calypso, Delta, Crystal, Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra.
This is what Camden Town beers taste like: full of flavour, balanced, our twist on a classic style. It’s got body, depth, with a full roundness to it which supports the big hop flavour and aroma (punchy citrus, roasted tropical fruit, strawberry), a bitterness which is skillfully restrained instead of shocking. This is not your usual IPA.

This is a great limited edition IPA from the Camden Brewery. Gives a nice front hit when you first taste it but leaves you satisfied with a really smooth aftertaste.

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
Keg. Pours a deep amber, with a white head. Dry, medium bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy taste, quite floral, malt, grapefruit, spruc, caramel. Tasty. (2012-02-13)

3.8
Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
On draught at The Euston Tap. Pours a golden amber colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of caramel, treacle, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with a chewy caramel malt backbone. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a dry finish. Lingering pine, caramel and alcohol. Mildly bitter. Very nice.

3.6
Leighton (21477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Keg at Euston Tap, London. Clear amber pour. Toasty malts, some ripe citrus, light herbal hops. Medium sweet. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A few berries, light pine, some toasty sugars. Not bad. More like an amber ale.

3.5
DanielBrown (4519) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Keg at Southampton Arms, London. Very dark amber, with a beige head. Tinny flavour. Some bitter hops to start then it sort of gets lost. Nice enough finish. Reasonable stuff.

3.1
Scopey (14972) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2011
Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours much darker than expected - deep brown, with a big off-white head. The nose is toffee (due to crystal malt?), with some pine, hop and leather. The taste is hay, wood, pine, caramel, toffee, leather and resin, with a long bitter finish. Thin body, well hidden-alcohol and fine carbonation. A bit thin and one dimensional.
