Brewed with Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Apollo hops, this is a decent little IPA, and a great find for a supermarket.
You see, I bought this in my local Waitrose, a shop that continues to offer a very good selection of beer, even if they have stopped stocking my beloved Torpedo.
Pouring a pale gold, Harviestoun’s IPA smells of lemons and peaches and pencil shavings.
There’s a sticky toffee and shortcake biscuit malt, a little white pepper and a lick of heather honey, and a bunch of hops that provide grapefruit and melon, lime zest, patchouli and lemon rind all wrapped up in a plywood and resin jacket.
The finish is a little bit oily, but apart from that this is a fine bottle of beer to be able to find on the high street.
