Weird Beard Five O’Clock Shadow American IPA

Another from the third Needle & Pin craft beer selection boxThe N&P love Weird Beard beers. So do I. All of their brews have a swagger to them, and you can expect to see more of them in the fridges and on the pumps in the months ahead. Yes please! Five O’Clock Shadow is big on hoppiness, in both aroma and taste, with citrus and floral notes. It’s also big on mouthfeel. The bitterness is balanced by a classic American IPA malt backbone.

I loved this one. Piney. Hoppy. Resinous. All of the things that I like to find in my IPA. This one has a really nice balance from that malty backbone, and low bitterness. This results in massive flavours swirling around your mouth. One of my favourites of the year so far, and it will certainly be in the running for beer of the month.
