Chimera IPA 7% (Downton Brewery)

A beautiful light golden beer, bottle conditioned, with a gentle floral scent

It starts with a lovely warming caramel sweetness, filling the taste buds like only a strong beer can. This is swiftly followed by a rounded mellow citrus edge, finishing with a nice fresh but not overpowering bitterness.

Not your typical huge hopped powerful finish IPA, but the best things don’t fit in the neat boxes we expect them to.

8/10 A cracking warming golden beer, great balance of sweetness and hops. Does the IPA title justice.
