Okell’s IPA (4.5%)

IPAIn these days of high octane IPA’s stuffed to the gills with American and New World singe-your-tastebuds hops, Okell’s IPA is a solid “Old School” beer that tastes comfortable and homely.
Its malting is round and chewy, all toffee coated ice cream cones and there’s a really nice spicy hopping that packs a good stinging nettle, hazel and lemon zest punch, along with some hints of fennel and a sticky sweet apple juice finish.
It’s an easy going beer, and personally I’d like just a little bit more of an alcohol hit, but it feels rather good to taste this kind of flavour profile amidst so many in your face Transatlantic hop bombs.
