Well, this is rather good.
Sambrook’s, a brewery that I generally like, have started doing a more – And I hate to say it – “Craft” range, and this is my first taste.
Battersea IPA pours a deep orange and smells of honey and apricots.
There’s a very nice malt body, round and gooey and ever so chewy, packed with toffee and vanilla tinged cheesecake biscuit base.
The hops are sparkly and sharp, zingy with mandarin skins, grapefruit zest, sherbet and nettle tea.
All of this goodness and a finish that’s long and bitter and beautifully dry.
