Today’s review is from my cracking local brewery Pretty Decent Beer Co based out of Forest Gate. ‘The Even Greater Love Story’ is a Double IPA version of the their core range beer ‘Greatest Love Story’, a beer I regularly stock in my own pub . It is single hopped with one of the most popular hops going, Simcoe, and comes in at 8% ABV. … Continue reading Beer Review: The Even Greater Love Story – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Finally got around to trying the beer that many consider to be the gold standard of regularly available Double IPAs. Cornwall’s premier craft brewery Verdant is well known for the bold DIPA’s but ‘ALLEN’ is the classic that everyone knows. It comes in at 8% an features the hops peoplle know and love; Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra. I’d been looking forward to trying this for a … Continue reading Beer Review: ALLEN – Verdant Brewing Co.
Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent. I’ve been drinking plenty in their taproom but haven’t got around to writing about any of them. Well I’ve picked up a few cans to start documenting the first being this one; 5ft 9 In Cuban Heels. This Double IPA, from a month or so back to be … Continue reading Beer Review: 5ft 9 in Cuban Heels – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
One of my lovely friends and colleagues at work got me some beer for Christmas, one of which included my favourite South West brewery, the Falmouth based Verdant! ‘The Future is Uncertain’ is an 8% DIPA featuring a triple drop of New Zealand’s finest hops; Motueka, Nelson Sauvin and (a new one for me) Waimea. Visually, the beer looks absolutely insane. Pure mango juice looking … Continue reading Beer Review: The Future is Uncertain – Verdant Brewing Co.
Today’s review is another from the ASDA exclusive brewery BAD (Brewing & Distilling) Co. Their Off-Tempo range appears to be the staple line of beers that the stock in the supermarket giant. The range is meant to be a more experimental and unusual selection of beers. I have previously reviewed their Milkshake IPA and this time around I’ve got their DIPA 3 a double IPA … Continue reading Beer Review: 01 19 Off-Tempo DIPA 3 – BAD Co.
Verdant Brewing Company recently released the Doubling Down series. Four single hop Double IPAs brewed in collaboration with three different Cornish breweries. The one I picked up while down in Falmouth was the Simcoe edition which was brewed with Perranporth based Black Flag Brewery. All the beers in the series come in at a respectable 8% ABV to solidify that Double IPA status. Visually the … Continue reading Beer Review: Doubling Down (Simcoe) – Verdant x Black Flag
It’s been far too long since I enjoyed a beer from Buxton Brewery (no guesses where they’re from)! However, they continue to have a presence on the supermarket shelves, particularly those of Tesco by the looks. I picked up King Slayer a little while back and have only just got around to give this big boozy double IPA a go. It comes in at a … Continue reading Beer Review: King Slayer – Buxton Brewery
I have sadly missed a couple of days of my October goal: to post everyday this month. An early start at work and a late finish did not leave me time to put out a review. That will not deter me however and despite missing one day I see no reason to not try an post on the rest. So take up for this transgression, … Continue reading Beer Review: Joker IPA // Double Joker – Williams Bros. Brewing Co
The supermarket beers that Northern Monk put out are of a consistently high quality so I was very much looking forward to giving this boozy collaboration a go. ‘Eternal Haze’ is a Double dry-hopped Double IPA at 8% ABV and is a twist on Northern Monk’s core range beer ‘Eternal’, which is a, substantially lighter, session IPA. I actually had the original on draft when … Continue reading Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets
My wonderful family got a variety of incredible sounding beers for my birthday from two Newcastle based brewers: Wylam and By The River. Today’s beer is from the latter. By The River are of course based along the River Tyne. They brew out of a container settlement under the Tyne Bridge on the Gateshead side of the river. ‘Doubleheeder’ is a big Double IPA at … Continue reading Beer Review: Doubleheeder – By The River Brew Co.
