$4.99, Reilly’s, Hilton Head, SC, USA.
Simple orange pour with good clarity, nice, rocky head and very good lacing.
A simple and effective English IPA. Good grassy, fresh hop nose – clean and strong, with the taste reflecting that aroma. Mild grapefruit bitterness, nicely balanced with a little biscuit malt that finishes dry and bitter exactly as an ale of this description should. Reminds me aof better cask ales, and the alcohol is very well hidden. Lots of session possibilities despite the price and the higher than usual ABV.
Nice job form Ridgeway, the kind of beer that I expect is infinitely better closer to the source, but still does a nice job bottle when we get it here in the USA.
