London Fields Brewery Sterling IPA (6%)

What a lovely little IPA this is.
Single hopped with Sterling, the beer is a very nice marmalade orange and, though it doesn’t hold much of a head, the aroma more than makes up for it with a good spicy herb filled smell with jelly sweets on the side.
The malt is sticky but not too heavy, like a nice chewy toffee it hangs around with a honeyed richness, a little orange juice and some crumbly biscuits.
Over all this the Sterling hops are crisp and slightly resinous, like a pine wood in the distance.
In the foreground there’s fields of green herbs, tarragon and mint freshening you up for the peppered heather and bracken leaves of the long dry finish.
