Time to put down the Tempranillo for a while and get back to beer. Curious is a range of beers from a local brewer, Chapel Down in Tenterden, Kent, who also happen to do wines (mainly wines). This is their IPA
Chapel Down, Curious IPA; 5.6% abv
Aroma: wonderfully hoppy, fresh grassy aromas, edges of citrus
Appearance: clear, light copper, not too much in the way of visible carbonation; fluffy head that quickly goes
Taste: plenty of hops, freshly mown grassy hints; dry finish
Finish: Deliciously bitter but not too harsh, edging towards fuller bodied, long lasting bitterness; smooth, with moderate carbonation
The bitterness seems to disguise the stronger alcohol, so much so that it doesn’t hit the mouth or throat. Quite a good beer and one that I enjoyed. To be fair I think this deserves more than the rating it gets in ratebeer, more like an American IPA so one that hits my taste buds well.
