Tatton Brewery VIPA (6.3%)

VIPA - 1A week or two ago I had a chat with Greg from Tatton Brewery over the telephone.
He was a very nice chap, and a few days later one of his beers turned up in my mixed case from Beers Of Europe.
And it’s a very a nice beer too, big and bold and fruity, its aroma is bruised apple and pears, and the beer sits a rich gold in my glass.
The malting is round and chewy, all caramel wafers, pancakes, peach Melba and runny honey, and there’s a very nice salted spicy background hum from the yeast.
Over this the hops – all English, fact fans – are sharp and herbal, bracken and nettles, blackberry leaf tea and a hint of dandelion and burdock.
And all this goodness is warmed through by a good alcohol kick as you head into the bitter edged toffee flapjack of the finish.
