Harviestoun Wild Hop IPA (5.2%)

It seems Sainsburys have a new range of beer.
It also seems that their beer buyer knows about buying beer.
It’s certainly better than the infernal posters and placards that one of their rivals have strung up all over their stores.
Anyhow, the new range is currently on offer and so I picked up six.
Being an IPA lover I chose to open this one first.

The first Harviestoun beer I ever tried was their Bitter & Twisted and I loved it.
It was one of the first bottled beers on the journey that eventually led me here.
So, Wild Hop IPA.
Is it wild and is it hoppy?
Well now.

The beer pours a lovely honey amber.
The malting is all soft and warm caramel biscuits laced with honey and lemon notes.
And ladies and gentlemen, the hop is fierce.
Potent, astringent, crisp, sharp and very very dry.
