534: Caledonia – Outpost I.P.A.

20180430_145031The Brewery: “Caledonia Ales are a range of Scottish beers to suit every occasion. By combining the highland water from Loch Katrine with the finest Scottish malted barley, hops and yeast, we have created a family of beers that are unmistakably Scottish.”

The Beer:Caledonia Outpost IPA has some subtle fruity / estery notes. These are dominated by strong malty grainy flavours along with a punchy hoppy character. The beer is distinctly bitter with a lingering bitter aftertaste as you would expect from an IPA. The beer has a warming alcoholic effect on the throat. This beer is medium to full bodied.

Flavour Profile: Malt, Crystal malt, it is triple hopped using German Herkules hop for bittering, then US Cascade as a late hop and nally dry hopped using more Cascade post fermentation.”

Yep, I liked this, what you expect of an IPA. Nice stuff. 5.0% A.B.V. June 2018
