Beer: Castle Rock Screech Owl, an English take on American IPA

Sainsbury’s have a Great British Beer Hunt underway, and this is one of the 20 finalists. I picked it up for just a pound, and I’m impressed. It’s really hoppy, but with a bit of a savoury British taste alongside the more floral American hop notes. The producer’s website is here.

Castle Rock Screech Owl Strong IPA
5.5% alcohol. Powerful and quite citrussy with a nice combination of floral and savoury hoppy notes, with some nice chunky bitterness. Tangy, lively and complex, finishing fresh and citrussy. 8.5/10
