Ilkley Brewery Co – Crossroads West Coast IPA – 5.4%
From the Ilkley Brewery Co comes Crossroads West Coast IPA at 5.4%. A very sweet citrus aroma on decapping. The pour is clear and a good presence of bittering hops in the aftertaste. Overall a clean tasting brew with good head retention. The body and mouthfeel could be less watery for the style, however I find this quite a pleasant beer. The Beer eventually mellows out quite a little after the pour and the aroma hops leap out too. I am missing the kick from a lack of alcohol which I would normally expect with a true american IPA.
