Pinner Throwback IPA has a pleasant blend of spicy, citrus and floral hop aromas and flavors surrounded by plenty of pale and toasty malts, yet has plenty of bittering hops to avoid being overly sweet. Aroma and flavor both have low levels of fermentation esters in the background that give this beer plenty of complexity. There is a low, drying astringency that lingers in the finish that is slightly distracting from what is, overall, quite a complex and tasty Session IPA.
