Review by Rob
Combining finest malted barley with a whole bunch of audacious American hops. This refreshing, and gutsy American IPA is dry, refreshing and explodes with grapefruity citrus flavour.
A delight with sticky ribs or juicy American burgers. Or for a more casual evening, nachos.
Another supermarket safe IPA, of the American IPA variety. Americans love their IPA’s more than British supermarkets. And a lot of them have spades of fruit in them. Grapefruity citrus on the label. American IPA on the label, brewed by Marstons in Wolverhampton, UK. A couple of miles east of America Google maps tells me.
This truly is a remarkable beer, it has been a very long time since I’ve had a beer like this. Has a huge dollop of soap in the flavour, missing from the label. Reminds me of being a small child and swearing at my mum, she washed my mouth out with soap. An unpleasant memory and an unpleasant beer. Avoid this like the plague, in fact if I never see this beer again it’ll be too soon.
I can only imagine that the guys at the brewery imagined what a shipyard looks and tastes like, and invented this on the back of a fag packet.
E.T. on the Atari is widely recognised as the game that destroyed a console, fondly remembered because there is a landfill in New Mexico that all these cartridges reside in. Similarly you can put the entire contents of this beer in a landfill in Wolverhampton and I won’t miss it. And I won’t be there fondly remembering and filming the unearthing of this beer in 30 years time.
Finally two words that spring to mind with this beer – Avoid. Soap.
