Wye Valley – HPA

WP_20160715_21_01_49_ProWhat they say: “HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. It’s smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish. Locally grown Target and Celeia hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer. With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.”

Had the draught version of this back in 2013 – again a nice summer ale in my opinion, but not one I’d choose on a winters night with a roaring fire. Ok though. 4.0% A.B.V. July 2016.
