IPA (Full Sail)

This is an American "English Style" IPA, hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops, can't get more English than that can you?

No big citrus in the aroma, just hints of ripe satsumas, no big dry hop smell.

Sweet malt with a dry bitterness to balance. The middle is limited, gentle sweet citrus that lingers to the end, involving with the hops. The finish is a blunt hammer of dry bitterness, less blended distinct flavours, more like a slap to the tounge.

6/10 A US IPA in all but the hops, which sadly lack depth and diversity.
