Now im a fan of craft pale ales as usually the ddh IPAs are sometimes on the bitter side for me.
But with a strap line like “bold & punchy” i thought id give it a go.
Lovely thick pour, perfectly hazy, just as you would expect from cloudwater, although a slight orange tinge. Bright white head that disappeared quite quickly.
Is that orange tinge giving subliminal messages and giving me a tangerine on the nose? Add to that a bit of pineapple and even apple.
The smoothness smothers your tongue. A really gentle bitterness starts at the tip of the tongue and slowly moves backwards as it develops. Its a long lasting bitterness, but its so light. Almost creamy, slightly peachy with the soft furry skin attached.
Eating it with a curry, it had no problem cutting through the strong flavours and they worked really well together.
Who’d of thought cold beer and a hot spicy curry would go so well?!
