With Ikat, Salt have created a rather marvellous Double Dry Hopped Double IPA.
A beer that’s round and chewy, as smooth as silk, creamy and fruity.
The malting is brown sugar rich, with bagels and wholemeal bread building a lovely backbone on which the hops can rest.
And they do rest.
They don’t jump out and attack, rather they provide a sexy soft companion, all passion fruit and bruised apples, lime leaves and lots and lots of honeydew melon fleshiness.
And all the while there’s a white rum booziness swishing around underneath, just to make sure that by the time you’ve finished, you’re well and truly finished.
