Galway Bay Brewery – Fullsail dry hopped IPA


Well here goes the first thoughts.

Fullsail is an American style IPA with an ABV of 5.8%. The hops used are of American origin, Colombus, El Dorado and Cascade.

Appearance – It has a cloudy golden appearance and a bright white foamy head. The persistence of the head is average for this style of beer.

Aroma – It has a strong hoppy tropical fruit/citrus aroma which is very pleasing.

Flavour – It has a strong citrus hops flavour. Bitter marmalade and burnt sugar are also apparent.

Mouthfeel – Slick with a medium lively carbonation.

Finish – Bitter dry finish with lingering hops.

Overall – Nice IPA, slightly too bitter for me.  But very drinkable in small numbers. 6.5/10
