Left Hand Brewing Co. IPA (6.6%)

As much as I love Left Hand, even wearing one of their cycling jerseys when out on my bike, their straight ahead classic IPA has managed to pass me by.
Until now.
And I’m quite glad that it has, because opening it now and taking a swig fills me with memories of setting out on my journey of Beery discovery.
It’s a beer that holds all those things I remember from my first tastes of Flying Dog and Sierra Nevada, Bear Republic and Victory.
There’s the spun sugar candy cane sweetness and biscuity crunch of the malts, that barley sugar aroma that only American beer seems able to create, and then there’s the blisteringly dry finish that cuts across the lovely fresh pine needles and orange zest, passion fruit of the hops.
