I like this rather a lot and I’m not sure exactly why.
Maybe it’s simply a well made beer.
You see, the thing is Belapur IPA doesn’t look particularly inspiring, pouring a slightly insipid pale yellow with barely a trace of bubbles for a head.
And it smells of straw lined wooden crates with old apples in it.
But it tastes terrific!
There’s a hay bale, honey and toasted bread crust malt and a whole bunch of hops that bring black pepper heat, elderflower dryness, hazelnut pithiness and a splash of lemon juice.
All of this builds as you drink, creating a rather intense experience which ends in a super dry and bitter lingering finish.
Yup, I like this a lot.
