George Wright Brewing Co. Pipe Dream (4.3%)

Pipe DreamGeorge Wright Brewing Co. is another new one on me.
They’re based in St. Helens, Merseyside, and this is their India Pale Ale.
And it’s not a bad IPA at all, the only thing I can think this beer might benefit from would be a little extra ABV to really bring the flavours out more.
Pipe Dream is a nice light golden straw with a fluffy cloud of a head.
The smell is fruity and sharp, with apricots and citrus fruit and a nose-full of hay bales.
There’s a lot of straw in the malts, dry and earthy with a soft digestive biscuit and a spoonful of honey.
The hops are brittle and spiky, lemon juice fresh and elderflower dry, they leave a very nice clean finish.
In fact what I said at the beginning about a little more alcohol is probably rather unnecessary.
This is a very good beer indeed, I just can’t help but want that extra alcohol kick.
But that’s just me.
