Brighton Bier Old Skool IPA (6.5%)

This is not, as you might imagine, a traditional British IPA with Fuggles and Golding and the like.
No, this is an IPA packed to the rafters with American hops beginning with the letter C.
And so from your first swig of this light sunny beer with its frothy white head you find an intense hit of dry grapefruit pith and zingy lemon rind, a dab of orange, some woody tobacco and an intensely bitter hit of green herbal foliage.
Underneath this there’s a solid caramel and bagel malt body, a pinch of salt and a spoon of honey that adds some much needed sweetness to the long and intensely dry finish.
Old Skool is great.
