Samuel Smith India Ale
This is a traditional European IPA, featuring prominent but not over-the-top hop characteristics balanced against a rich core of roasty, caramel-like malt. The mouthfeel boasts a slightly viscous texture, with flavors of dried stone fruit, pine resin and baking spice that dance on the palate. The finish is dry and offers softly astringent notes of black tea and pepper alongside a pleasant orange-rind accent. Merchant du Vin.
