It certainly is great and Eastern – at least if you’re based in central London: since its inception in 2011, Redchurch Brewery has grown to three sites in and around East London, in Cambridge Heath, Bethnall Green and Harlow, Essex.
This IPA has a malt-packed menu including maris otter, munich, which is well balanced by the dry bitterness of a late hopping and an intriguing earthy character.
Similar to the colouring of the bottle’s label, this pours a lively hazy orange with a thin, just off-white head
The aroma is driven by chinook, columbus and nugget hops to give tropical fruits: citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, with hints of pine and some background floral and fruity malt notes.
More complex than your average an IPA, as coconut join the juicy tropical paradise party – dare I say I even detect a rum warmth in the alcoholic mouthfeel. Long, slightly dry bitter coating finish.
Just like my favorite type of Caribbean party, this leaves you with memories of tropical fruits and takes a long time to finish.
