Details

They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. Kaapse Brouwers have recreated a US classic in Carrie. It’s billed as a strong IPA but it’s almost too dark to sit on the IPA spectrum, being a rich and beautiful mahogany with a lightly fluffy, beige head. The aroma is fruity and toasty with some caramel and pine coming through. The taste is more of the same, caramel, toasted bread, some citrus marmalade and a beautiful bitter, pine tinged finish. It’s not a style of IPA that’s in vogue and it’s somewhat classical now in today’s lightning fast world but there’s no arguing it’s beautifully brewed and satisfying to sup.

A new Dutch brewery to me; but one I'll try again. Great mouthfeel; rich tones; plenty of alcohol...
