St Austell Brewery

Big Job (7.2% ABV, bottle)
Deep golden with a white head that stays well and quite a high level of carbonation. The aroma is very IPA: bold, quite spicy hops, with a citrus edge. On the palate, it’s just divine. So much going on. It’s hoppy, yes, and yet the malt balance is good — bready and grainy. The hop addition is powerful, but not overpowering. Important distinction. There’s orange citrus, lemon pith, resinous and spicy notes, hints of mint, a little mango. The overall package is so smooth and, for 7.2% ABV, so drinkable. I could just sip — sip — this all evening!
Buy: I got mine from Tesco. It only appears to be available in a mixed box from the brewery.
