Shimla IPA

Brewery: Allgates

A 5.5% beer brewed in Wigan, Lancashire. by Allgates. Shimla IPA brew active: 01/10/2011.

A pale golden coloured beer with a light long lasting head. The beer is crisp, clear and almost sparkles. The aroma is predominantly hoppy with a lemon and fruit citrus edge and a slight hint of freshly cut grass. There is also a slightly sweet aroma. It is a complex and well balanced beer with sharpness, with the Chinook, Centennial and Ahtanum hops providing taste wise a blend of fruit (tropical fruits) and citrus hop flavours and a lemony freshness. There is also a pleasant honey sweetness that doesn't overpower, but balances out the citrus nicely. The flavours develop and become increasingly bitter, leading to a long, dry and bitter aftertaste.
