"A clean and crisp lager body, light gold in colour from the grist bill of Joe White Signature Pils malt and flaked corn. 4 different hops give layers of hop flavour and aroma. Cascade T-90 hops, along with a big load of Cryo hops in the form of Ekuanot, Amarillo and Sabro. Clean and sessionable for a summers day, with plenty of hops to keep the hop heads happy."

Sunday Road Brewing Co - Yule Fuel Cold IPA


Drinkability: 10/10

Overall Impression: 9/10


This is a really good IPA. There's plenty of fruit punch from the hops, and plenty of bitterness too. But there's something about the bitterness that is so smooth and clean, and isn't unpleasant or overpowering at all. Perhaps from the T-90 hops? It balances perfectly with the mixture of flavour/aroma hops that give a great variety of fruit flavours from citrus to tropical and stone fruit. Very easy drinking and refreshing, with a decent amount of fizz and a light to medium body/mouthfeel hence the perfect drinkability score.

One of the best IPA's we've had - great stuff! We want more!
