Very bitter finish, long lasting
A good IPA.
Bottle from global retailer.
Appearance - bright copper with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - dirty yeast and sulphur note. Light toffee breaking through.
Taste - toffee and biscuits.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry astringent finish.
Overall - can’t say this is a great example of the style. More like a badly executed bitter.

500ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s, New Mills, Derbyshire.
An IPA is the old fashioned, moderately-hopped sense and all the weaker for it. Bland, watery and with a strange metallic finish. There’s a reason Marstons don’t have their name prominently on it.
