This week at The Pulse offices we are drinking and indulging in the great Gentle Bastard.
This IPA is brought to you by Horizont.
A local craft brewery that despite perhaps not being all that glamorous still continually deliver knock out beers time and time again.
When I call Horizont unglamorous I don’t mean that as a dig.
It’s just there are more alluring hop heads out there.
Despite Horizont’s brilliance it is sometimes all to easy to forget about them when ordering a brew.
It might be the clean but uninspiring labels.
It certainly ain’t their beer as that stuff is in the main terrific.
What to make of Gentle Bastard?
Well it’s petulant.
A little minatory.
A delicate bitterness arrives shortly after the first mouthful.
At 6% there is just enough bite to keep your head off the table.
Gentle Bastard is something we should all drink more of.
I most definitely intend to.
