Black Iris Brewery Mother’s Ruin (7%)

Mother’s Ruin is a Juniper IPA and I absolutely love it.
It’s crisp and clean and clear, the juniper berries giving you a gin brightness in both the flavour and the aroma.
You find a decent caramel wafer, honey and shortcake body from the malts that reminds you that this is indeed a beer, and the hopping brings pithy dry mown lawns, dewy woodland undergrowth and a cup full of nettle tea.
The orange rind that’s also been thrown into the beer adds a pleasant zesty zing, but it’s the crystal clear Juniper that makes this beer so very good.
Lovely stuff.
