Wharf IPA is brewed using hop varieties grown in Sussex and Kent. The imagery on the can is of the Wharf opposite the brewery site which sits on the river Ouse where the brewery was established in 1790.
Wharf IPA is a modern heavily hopped IPA. It is brewed with new hop varieties to create a joyful outpouring of fresh flavours from the bine.
English hops are considered by some to be less exciting than their American counterparts, but this beer showcases them in all their grassy, herby, spicy glory, providing a wonderfully complex and pleasing aroma. On the palate it evokes the English hedgerow, with hints of mint, grass, pepper, rosemary and figs.
These hints pair perfectly with a rich meaty dish such as roast lamb, and also have the power to cut through and enhance a quiche or frittata.
