In a nutshell: A classically styled West Coast IPA from Elusive Brewing of Finchampstead in Berkshire.
The lowdown: West Coast IPAs are renwoned for their bold hoppy and piney aromas and flavours matched with a storng bitterness and Elusive's Tornado Alley fully lives up to that billing. There's a hint of malt sweetness leading along to the punchy finish with a riot of pine and citrus flavours following all the way through.
Style - Bitter, Pale Ale & IPA ABV 5.8% - Moderate Strength
