606 IPA Paddock Wood
606 IPA (Paddock Wood)
Ratebeer 3.2 60th percentile
Beer Advocate B
The nose is right for an IPA. There is the required caramel malt and grapefruit hops. Grapefruit hops begin their assault with a slowly building intensity that just stopped short. Perhaps it is my West Coast palate than expects an IPA to taste like I tongued a ripe grapefruit. This does mean that you can actually taste the medicinal and caramel malts. This IPA falls just below Brocktons.
It is surprisingly dry and clean for an IPA.
Alcohol Content 0 5.4%
This might be my biased grapefruit loving tongue. The average IPA person will most likely enjoy it.
Ingame Enhancement 0
This was an early selection in the IPA tasting night with Gordo.
Again, this will probably appeal to the calmer IPA drinker. The grapefruit hops and caramel malts are there in the right proportions. It's intensity is just turned down a few notches.
