Edinburgh India Pale Ale

Deuchars IPA

Deuchars IPA

Caledonian Brewery Deuchars IPA, Edinburgh

This is one of the beers I bought on Sunday. In 50 cL cans. This India Pale Ale is from a Scottish brewery that I've never heard of, but really want to taste. Ok! I love India Pale Ale. Usually with a more hoppy flavour profile.

Look at the beautiful colour. Deep amber at the core, with a lovely head. Very aromatic nose - lots of yeasty perfume, citrus, and clean herbal notes. Very clean. On the palate, the citrus/orange peel flavour reveals itself more. This beer has a round texture, silky and smooth. Deliciously bitter, hoppy finish.

A very refreshing beer, with great complexity and elegance. Wonderful with food, although the bitterness may turn some people off. I find it very appetizing, but it does need food.
