Thornbridge Brewery, Bakewell, UK – Elio, Summer Ale, 4.7%, 330ml bottle.
It’s the end of the summer so light refreshing hoppy beers are all the rage! This from Thornbridge is no exception, a nice clean malt bill gives way to fruity US hop varieties. Something to sip whilst soaking up the last rays.
Amundsen, Oslo, Norway – Ink & Dagger, Modern IPA, 6.5%, 330ml can.
From Oslo in Norway we’ve got a big hop smack of an IPA from Amundsen. Think wet tropical grass, pineapple and mango freshness all crammed into this self-proclaimed hop bomb.
Kirkstall Brewery, Kirkstall, UK – Dry hopped pilsner, 4.0%, 330ml can.
Kirkstall have been brewing on their new kit up in Leeds for a while now, they’ve poached some of the North’s best brewers and are leading the charge at the moment. Pilsner and lager style beers are generally harder to produce than ales, and this certainly shows off their skills. This classic has been dry hopped with Loral, a unique hop that produces a distinct aroma.
North Brewing, Leeds, UK – Piñata, Pale Ale, 4.5%, 330ml can.
Beer with actual fruit, must be summer! A softly tropical pale ale with stone fruit aromas of guava and mango and a strong hoppy finish.
Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii, USA – Gold Cliff, Pineapple IPA, 7.2%, 355ml bottle.
The latest addition to the Aloha Series with Gold Cliff IPA, a bold, juicy beer that highlights the adventurous spirit of the Hawaiian Islands. Brewed using real pineapple, this beer packs a big fruity punch with a touch of tartness. Held in balance by using Mosaic, Chinook, Topaz, and Citra, this is a real treat.
Lervig, Stavanger, Norway – Johnny Low, Session IPA, 2.5%, 330ml can.
Our favourite dudes from Stavanger are back. Even though it’s 2.5%, this session IPA is so hoppy you won’t feel like you’re drinking a light beer. Perfect for any social occasion, lunches or sitting in the sun. Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo to balance out a good bitterness with massive citrus hop aroma and flavour.
Gipsy Hill, London, UK / Collaboration with Wiper & True, Bristol, UK – Golden Hour, Summer Ale, 4.0%, 440ml can.
Golden Hour is a collaboration with Wiper & True, in celebration of Gipsy Hill’s 5th birthday. They used a hop from right here in Herefordshire, Ernest, backed up with Cryo Simcoe and Cascade in the whirlpool and in the dry hop, matching it with Windsor yeast to give the beer some body and fruity ester notes.
If you chose ‘I like all beers’
Põhjala, Tallinn, Estonia – CocoBänger, Imperial Stout, 12.5%, 330ml bottle
Couldn’t resist this, still loving what Põhjala are putting out at the moment and this looks amazing! This rich imperial stout is brewed with coconut and Caturra coffee from Costa Rica.
If you chose ‘No dark beers’
Buxton Brewery, Buxton, UK – Low Tor, Bitter, 3.8%, 440ml can.
Buxton’s new can range is growing and they’re gaining plenty of fans. Low Tor is a session version of their classic Red IPA High Tor. Clean pronounced bitterness with caramel & toffee malt notes, a perfectly balanced bitter!
