After a hard day replacing the front deck, this IPA went down a treat.   Such complexity in the flavours, dried fruit and caramelised sugars mixed with a subtle bitterness with a hint of malt whisky (or perhaps that was the 6% abv coming through).

Here’s Dundee band, The Associates, with the great  ‘going out’ anthem ‘Party Fears Two’.  There was a time when we all tried to dance like this …………
