Review: Newcastle Winter IPA

Newcastle Winter IPAThe latest in Newcastle’s seasonal releases is this cold-weather brew, a Winter IPA designed for celebratory tidings.

The amber beer doesn’t come across as particularly IPA-like. It’s not particularly bitter or hoppy; in fact, it’s on the sweet side. Perhaps that’s what makes it “winter” — some vague baking spices in the finish that play with a malty body. Easy to drink, but also easy to forget in the end. It’s not exactly the winter warmer you might be expecting, but hardly a summer thirst-quencher, either.
