This English IPA is relatively flavorless. It has a nice head and aroma, but it doesn’t possess any qualities that would make me seek it out. The way I understand the English IPA style is that it’s supposed to be very flavorful and pleasantly bitter, able to hold its own against spicy or very flavorful dishes. This beer is not very flavorful or bitter and if paired with food that’s full of flavor, it would politely step into the background.

I’m not saying I dislike this beer. I don’t. It’s okay and not disagreeable in any way but it’s not what I’ve come to expect from this style of beer.

However, their brewery sounds like it would be a fun tour.
