>Hopdaemon’s Skrimshander IPA
I’d had this beer kicking around for some time, and when I cracked it open I cursed myself for not doing so sooner – although it was a long time ago now! I didn’t blog it at the the time, but have since got another bottle in in order to evaluate it more seriously – and it was worth it. Hopdaemon are not a brewery that I’m overly familiar with, but that will change from now on. I loved this; copper in colour, with a hint of bready yeast and a touch of hop-pepperiness on the nose. Body-wise it’s light but quite sweet, and that gives a little more balance to the moderately sharp, citrussy bitterness that comes along at the end. I had chilled the bottle slightly and it certainly quenched the thirst – but this is one beer I’ll drink again and would love to try on draught, if anyone can tell me where this may be possible?
Here’s to many more, Hopdaemon.
