Turning Point Brew Co. Earth Years Old (4.8%)

This Pale Ale has been brewed with a new and experimental hops variety called Bru-1.
Turning Point have paired it with Citra and a light and subtle malt base.
What they have created is a light beer with the most extraordinary flavours.
Whether this is down to Bru-1 alone or the mixing of it with the other ingredients I neither know nor care.
The aroma of Earth Years Old isn’t anything special, some garden flowers and honey, but take a swig and you’re greeted with vanilla ice cream coated pineapple chunks, peach Melba, fresh rolling tobacco, garden herbs and lemon sherbet.
There’s also a very pleasing Hubba Bubba chewing gum flavour that reminds me of popping into the local newsagent on my way home from school and spending my last 50p.
This is a terrific beer.
And it may all be thanks to a terrific new hop variety.
