Craft Beer Tasting
Little Wild, The Little Beer Corporation, 6% ABV

Little Wild, Little Beer Corporation, beerliever.comFrom a Guildford-based micro-brewery comes the Little Wild IPA.  Their slogan is Live a big life, drink a little beer and they seem to be truly passionate.

Their is packed full of information about them, and I hope you’ll check it out because I can’t do them justice in my own words, so I’ll let them speak for themselves.  Find them on Twitter too.

Let your wild beast get the better of you

A lively red IPA made with Pale, Munich and Carapils Malts plus a generous helping of Chinook, Sorachi Ace, Columbus, Cascade & Amarillo hops

This beer dances around your tongue but then packs in a good punch. A beer with a robust bitterness that is broad and bracing, but held together firmly by a solid backbone of malt. Red in colour, with bright grapefruit citrus aromatics that leap out of the glass. Endlessly appetising. Fragrant, bright, zingy, citrusy, robust and strong.

My verdict:

Little Wild, Little Beer Corporation, beerliever.comVery good indeed.  It was incredibly fizzy on the pour, which was only a minor inconvenience.  I wouldn’t describe it as “red” but a rich golden colour it certainly was.  Aromas of citrus fruits for sure, but not a “new style” IPA that will knock you off your bar stool with hop bitterness.  Very balanced with the deep, caramel malt flavour, making this a great summer beer to enjoy outside, but equally drinkable on a cold night, too.

If you like small-batch, carefully made beers, this is for you.  And if you want some inspiration on another IPA from the beerliever archives try Gladeye IPA.
