Brusque Old World English-styled IPA recommended to traditionalist British pub hounds who’ll take umbrage with negative designations. Expect tinny copper ale or musty Dortmunder likeness instead of more fashionable fruit-juiced pine-hopped bittering. Earthen fungi waft and black tea entry heighten weirdly vegetal broccoli rabe snippet, skunked herbal funk, and minor juniper astringency. Gnarly rye-hopped leaf-dried nut-smoked acridity relegates organic grain richness. Unlike American IPA’s, there’s no fruited sweetness countering rugged bitterness. Serve to savvy Brits and experimental pubcrawlers.
