Rocky Head Brewery AAPA (5.5%)

AAPAHow best to describe AAPA?
“Wow!” would be a good start.
This is a gloriously fruity Pale Ale with a smell that’s lightly spiced jelly fruits and a hint of yeast.
The malting is syrup pudding, all chewy dough, burned sugar and some rich bran flakes which makes for a big round satisfying body over which the hops can do their thing.
And AAPA’s (Anglo American Pale Ale if you were wondering) hops are delightful.
Bags full of sherbet jelly sweets, waxed antique pine, fresh rolling tobacco, tangerines, a twist of lime and a few mint leaves make for a sharp, crisp, dry and bitter lip smakcing finish that makes me wish I had another bottle.
