Greene King – Churchill IPA

WP_20151123_19_37_12_Pro What they say: “The 4.2% abv golden ale is brewed with a total of seven hops and ‘dry hopped’ with East Kent Goldings, in a nod to the county that Churchill made home.  Described as a fresh, fruity and hoppy India Pale Ale, it will be available on the bar from May to August in over 475 Greene King pubs across Britain.”

And November as well apparently. I liked this and didn’t find it overly fruity, even the Blogger in Black’s Portly Partner liked it and he’s no fan of overly hoppy beer either. The A.B.V is about as high as I’d want to go if having a few. Served a little too cold but then ales here generally are sadly, and a pity there was no proper pump clip.
