Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference IPA (5.9%)

Brewed for Sainsbury’s by Marston’s, I thought I’d try it as @boakandbailey said it was pretty good.
They’re right (but of course!)
The malting is well balanced – digestive biscuit and a good caramel, tinged with burned sugar.
And, considering this is a brewed-for-supermarket beer, the hopping is decently big and bold.
Tingling peppery spices, green leaf sourness, and a nice dry finish.
This is a really decent IPA.

It also comes with terrific tasting notes:

Origin: Burton

Style: IPA
Taste: Hops and Malt

I’m glad they told me or I would never have guessed.
