A Slight Reprise: Salopian Brewery Sentinel (8.4%)

SentinelI reviewed this some weeks ago and was shocked and saddened to find it all flat and horrid.
I put it down to being sent out too early and I think I may have been right as this bottle is delicious.
Gone is the flatness, gone is the diacetyl burn, Sentinel is now a massive head melting Double IPA, thick with woody resins and heavy with gooey, yummy toffee malts.
It’s a beer to drink slowly, a beer to savour.
The hops are fizzy with sherbet and rich with mandarin marmalade.
There’s rich red wood and aniseed too, and peaches and, oddly, avocado.
And jelly sweets and brandy snaps.
In fact all sorts of good things.
Sentinel was brewed in collaboration with The Celt Experience brewery and now it’s matured you need to get a bottle.
