Drawing on the fine maritime history of IPA, Kinnegar’s IPA, Scraggy Bay, pairs their love of their home turf with their love of craftsmanship and beer. It bridges the gap between the traditional and the modern, and it surfs the waves of contemporary styling. With a nod to the Americas, it’s exudes new-world hop aromas, with pine and grapefruit being the most dominant. To taste, it’s a little subtler than the aroma promises but that’s a good thing. The malts are nice and sweet, but not too sweet, and they’re artfully balanced by a persistent but light bitterness. There’s a pleasing citrus tang coming from the green corner and it brings the beer together well. If you like a bit of tradition but still crave some modernity, this is the beer for you.
