My #12BeersOfXmas – Day 3 – Baltic Triangle IPA – Wapping Brewery (Liverpool) – 7.2%abv

IMAG2432

Brewed in the basement of the historic Baltic Fleet pub facing what was the southern part of Liverpool’s sprawling docks, this is a deep deep golden beer with a lasting lacy white head and an enormous fruity aroma with lashings of sticky orange, sweet peach and a bit of Mango. Oh my!

Oh WOW!!! This is a big IPA and no mistake! A market stall full of citrus fruit hits the tongue and dances a limbo on its way to the throat. This Full-bodied beer then let’s loose a serious whack of resinous sticky pine in a finish remarkably low on bitterness, making this a really smooth and easy to drink beer. Hardly a session beer, but this is a bloody cracker of an IPA!

I’m off for some vintage cheddar to go with this!!!
