    Bit of an epic fail on the beer reordering front,so I will just have make do with Vocation Life & Death and Thornbridge Jaipur IPA,four kiddie cans of each for £9,a Tesco multibuy deal.

    After a hot day toiling in the garden,a very decent pay off.

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    About a quarter into the case and the bottles are a bit variable, some are excellent, others taste too much of ginger and cinnamon; like a bad Christmas beer.

    The Beernut doesn't seem to like NEIPA,s. I have read all his posts for about 10 years or more and he only seems to like about 10%of the beers he tries. I have commented on some I disagreed with years ago but his attitude is piss off its my opinion . Untapped (while not the best source of ratings )has it at 3.75 with 31,500 rates which tells me the Beernut is totally out of step with the drinking public.Let him stick to his lambics.

    I haven't had any like that. I've had one with an emphasis on elderberries, which was pretty good, if not exactly true to type.

    Must be tough in the Republic of Ireland with so little real ale availability.

    I'm going to have to look out for this beer! Had a look on Untappd just now, and the latest reviews are nearly all around 3.5-4.0, but one reviewer tipped it down the sink ("Disappointing can; ended up in the sink. Very acidic. ") and another gave it 1.5 with no comments.

    It does look like the Beer Nut dislikes the characteristics of a NEIPA that are actually crucial to the style and which you aficionados rely on (a deliberately poor and unfinished-tasting beer?) but also he's got that reaction to certain hops that make them taste like onions (which I get sometimes) or in his case garlic (...the garlic dominates the aroma and there's a worrying heat in the nostrils too. Is this the style reverting to its usual naughty ways? Yes.). His review would be less provocative if he mentioned some NEIPAs that he liked, and said why, and how they differed from this one.

    I'm glad this conversation didn't take place in a pub, because I could see a major ruckus breaking out!
