Palma – Guinness Nitro IPA

I’d never seen or heard of this, although it has seemingly been available in limited locations for a few years. This is what Guinness say about it:

“A complex mix of five hop varieties yields a strong body with citrus flavours. Berry sweetness arrives. Bitterness lingers.”

I must admit, that went entirely over my palate, as I didn’t notice any strong body, any citrus flavours or any berry sweetness. It was all a bit bland. The “bitterness lingers” is a strange way to describe a beer though.

Anyway, an interesting experiment, but it’s not that exciting a beer. If they want intense flavours, pinch some of the ideas and tastes from Brewdog.
