What they say: A 4.1% IPA that maintains the classic bitterness and robustness of the style but with the addition of beautifully fruity American hops and all at an ABV that can be enjoyed all night. Impressively strong and full-flavoured for its ABV, this is a piece of classic and bold Butcombe engineering! ‘Atlantic’ is the little cousin of our bottled Brunel IPA at 5%.
As regulars may have guessed, this wasn’t my cup of tea - just too hoppy and flowery. A shame because I love Butcombe’s Bitter, it’s just divine. Oh well, can’t win ‘em all.
As always, clicking on the photo will take you to the brewery website.
