A few months ago Celt sent me some images of their new bottles and branding and I was rather excited by them.
Now, seeing them in the flesh for the first time, I was right to be excited as the new moulded bottles are superb.
And true to form, the beer contained therein is super too.
Brigid Fire is a Smoked Rye IPA that pours a rich amber and smells of nuts and flowers and peaches.
The malting is big and round and thick with toffee, the smokiness lingering quietly in the background like a mist and the rye adding an earthy tang over which the hops hit you with sharp grapefruit and lime zest, kiwi passionfruit and elderflower.
To top it off, Brigid Fire’s finish is long, bitter and dry, and cloaked in a gentle smokiness.
