From The Plant Room & Northern Monk Brew Co comes their Midsummer Peach & Apricot IPA at 6.0%. A seasonal series from Northern Monk. De-capping gives a subdued fragrance of peach and citrus aroma hops in a pleasant and understated floral mishmash. The pour is lively and nicely carbonated for the style. The pour is a hazy orange with particles of fruit or yeast suspended in the beer, giving a nice snow globe effect. Head generation was initially very good with semi decent retention, for a fruit heavy beer this is quite impressive, leaving a thin skin of white froth throughout the duration. The taste works brilliantly in conjunction with the peachy apricot aroma which develops into a more sweet beer as the glass warms. The underlying bitterness is very IPA-ish and doesn’t pull any punches. The beer has a very good mouthfeel and thick texture. For a fruit IPA I quite liked this one as it wasn’t overbearing or just a fruit punch in the face. I could still pick up the malt and citrus through the fruit, and to actually get the fruit flavours coming through and not having fermented out completely, is quite an achievement.
