General Thoughts:

Thwaites IPA is a very hoppy, bitter beer. This is also a very dry beer, not much of a sweetness at all. It leaves you with a bitter, astringent after taste. This is however quite a smooth beer, medium carbonation. This beer has a very deep hops flavour as you would expect from an IPA, so this beer doesn't let you down on that front. Taking this into consideration this would not be a beer for someone that is not used to the deep, bitter flavours that the hops provide, or someone that is into a sweeter flavoured beer. As I have said above this is a very bitter beer and if I'm honest not my favourite IPA. I would buy this beer again, however it wouldn't be my first choice IPA

Price:
€2.99 (based on a Dublin Tesco on the 11/11/2012)
