Newcastle Winter IPA
Well this post comes at the request of a friend of mine and the fact that every other post has either been an American or a German beer. I thought it was time for something different. Now I know what your thinking, wait I thought Newcastle only brewed brown Ale. Well yes they still do, along with this one and three others, Werewolf, summer ale, founders ale. All brewed in a certin season, But I will blog about them later in the new year. Well this Newcastle is an IPA (India Pale Ale). This is an old world IPA that follows 18th century IPAs That was a beer brewed with a lager amount of hops to make the long trip from Great Britian to India. Yes it's close to a british pale ale, but with more hops. This IPA is has bold hoppy scent and flower aroma. Winter IPA pours a pale redish color with a sticky yet foamy head. It has a zesty, malty, carmel simi-crisp taste, and has a hoppy creamy finish that is good. This one is a darn good IPA, a good drinkable IPA. Most Newcastles are good and drinkable beers. I would try this again and again I like this one. It's great tasting. Pick some up and give it a taste! Cheers! Please drink responsibly!
