Wylam Brewery Jakehead IPA (6.3%)

This is a dirty, dark and sexy little IPA that shimmies out of its bottle a cloudy peach yellow with a little winking head and smells of passion flowers, honeysuckle and candied peel.
The beer feels smooth and silky as you take a mouthful, it’s rich and thick and chewy with honey and ice cream cones, salty sweet shortbread and some brown sugar.
There’s also the most sensual tongue tingling fizz of sherbet, much like sucking a flying saucer sweet until you finally break through the rice paper shell and find that sparkling prize that always delights.
This rush of fizzy fun brings grapefruit and melon, lime zest, sticky orange marmalade and steely fresh garden herbs that lead you to a lip puckering climax in the crisp bitter finish.
Lovely.
