Salopian Brewery - Ticking All the Boxes

It's hard being a beer retailer. No really, it is. While it's really fun to seek out the latest amazing beers, it's important to remember that the range that we sell needs to have balance across it. Which is why we were delighted when Salopian produced a couple of the most kick-ass British IPAs that we'd tried in a long time. It meant that finally, they were ticking all the boxes.

Automaton IPA (7%, 20x33cl) and Vertigo Black IPA (7.2%, 20x33cl) are as good an example of their respective styles as we've tried in a long time. And they perfectly compliment the rest of Salopian's range. Shropshire Gold (3.8%, 12x50cl) is a decent pale copper-gold session beer, nice enough, with a good whack of late hops. Oracle (4%, 12x50cl) is a pale straw colour, with the malt dialled back a bit and the hops shining all the brighter because of it. And Darwin's Origin (4.3%, 12x50cl) is a fully copper-coloured bitter, but don't be fooled by the appearance - this is a best bitter with the hops turned up to 11, with a lovely sweetness at it's core, then turning bitter and perfumed in the finish.
