>The Midweek – Belhaven Twisted Thistle IPA
This week’s midweek tipple came in the form of Belhaven’s Twisted Thistle. An IPA in the more traditional sense, it’s got a great grassy, sharp nose and those Cascade and Challenger hops are the dominant flavours; dry and fruity. Not anywhere near as extreme as some of the other ‘New’ IPA’s out there, I’d reccommend this for those who want to dip their toe into more hopped beers.
I also thought this would be a great beer to pair with food; although I didn’t have anything cooking at the time. Off the top of my head, I think Twisted Thistle would sit really well with a Thai Green Curry, Lemon & Chilli -Spiced Chicken or Calamari.
