JAMES SQUIRE HOP THIEF 6

James Squire Hop Thief 6. After the mediocre Hop Thief 5, I was reluctant to try number 6. Released in April 2014, it’s an American pale ale show casing Simcoe and Columbus hops.

According to the brewers, the Simcoe imparts a “sort of passion fruit, pine-like character” while Columbus delivers an “earthy, floral characteristic”. Crystal malts form the malt backbone and it’s a moderate 5% ABV.

Orange amber colour. Foamy head, medium body with moderate carbonation. Pine and caramel aroma. Moderately strong citrus and pine flavour with moderately bitter and clean finish. There’s a generic caramel and toffee malt backbone. As it warms up you start to taste some of the dank, earthy flavours from the Simcoe.

In a similar vein to Fat Yak, it’s a bridging beer between commercial and craft beers.
