Wadworth (@Wadworth) – Beer Kitchen IPA

20140828_211530So here’s another beer from the Wadworth “Beer Kitchen” range.  Just the mention of IPA gets me all turgid with excitement, so I always have high expectations…

BKIPA sits in a glass about the right sort of colour – a rusty orange or thereabouts.  The head froths up and then spreads out to a reasonable covering.

The aroma is more about the juicy malt than the hops, but there’s an enticing fruitiness about it which is nice – plus a little toasty, biscuity note, too.

The carbonation is good and the mouth-feel is solid enough, with an excellent bitterness.  While not being uber-hoppy the taste goes on and on, and is one of the best after tastes I’ve had in a beer for a long time. A good slug of alcohol rounds out the taste nicely.

Everything’s good and it’s a nice beer – but I think it would be even better with a more pronounced hop aroma.

Well worth trying should you see it…
