The Kings Shipment (Compass) 6%Abv

Cracks with the slightest pop, a very limited head on the pour. Pale golden, aromas of orange light pine and a bit of toffee sweetness.

Gentle sweet malt to start is quickly followed by a fresh blast of oak, this seems to amplify the sweetness and caramel taste. Following that is a very fresh piney punch of hop bittering that lingers along with he caramel to the end.

7/10 A cracking oaked beer that gives a nice twist to the standard IPA.

Thanks to Compass Brewery for providing, you can find out more about their beers here.
