Barrelhouse Brewing Co. IPA (7.1%)

Like seriously.
Right, that’s enough of that nonsense.
Barrelhouse have brewed an exceptionally good IPA using Cascade, Mosaic and Simcoe hops that gives you an enormous fresh fruit salad hit, but manages to hold back the piney resin thing you generally get from an American IPA.
The aroma is honeysuckle and peaches, passion flower and mango, and the beer pours a bright gold with a nice fluffy head.
I love the nutty wholemeal bread and honey of the malts too, they’re round and salty sweet, and they provide a superb body to the beer that allow the hops to build as you drink, adding a sherbet fizz and a lovely dry bitterness to the finish.
