Brentwood Brewery IPA (3.7%)

IPA - 1Unlike a certain large brewer who likes to think that a low ABV beer calling itself an IPA doesn’t need to taste of anything and can use as little ingredients as possible, Brentwood’s IPA is absolutely bursting flavour.
Pouring a rich conker red, the aroma is earthy nutty caramel, and you get plenty of that in the flavour too, with the malts providing a digestive biscuit, roast hazelnut and honey body.
The hopping is packed with delicious and very English things.
You find hedgerow and nettle tea, rolling tobacco, dandelion and burdock and a little liquorice as you head towards the long bitter finish.
Lovely stuff and easy to drink.
