From the Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley, (part of The Lake District) comes their American style IPA, aptly named ‘IPA’. De canning gives a nice floral bouquet of citrus, stone fruit and grassiness. The beer is moderately carbonated and generates a good thin white head when poured. The appearance is golden amber and has a nice thick smooth body to the mouthfeel. Bitterness is also fairly abrupt and relatively high for an American style ipa, which is a bonus! the bitterness lingers nicely at the back of your tongue. A solid example of a modern IPA without any surprises. Very dependable and very good! I picked up a can of this when I visited their excellent brewery in April.
