Galway Bay Brewery Of Foam and Fury 8.5%

“The boys of the NYPD choir… Were singing ‘Galway Bay'” – and so has Beoir been singing the praises of this brewery. It voted Of Foam and Fury, Galway Bay Brewery’s Imperial IPA, the  Beer of the Year in 2014.

Look

Hazy golden orange with a foamy whote hear and nice amount of lacing.

Nose

I was surprised at the amount of fruit going on in this boozy imperial IPA. There’s loads of bold tropical flavour like grapefruit, mango and orange.

Taste

The galena, chinook, Pacific jade and simcoe hops provide more sweet and juicy tropical fruit, plus some resin, pine, spice and citrus. This is all supported by a hearty malt backdrop to give a complex yet balanced bittersweet character with a lasting bite and soft finish.

Verdict

Great levels of complex fruity flavour from a hard-hitting 8 percenter. No fury here; just a happy beer drinker.
