Beer of The Week 25 - Wishbone/Thirst Class 'Cloudy with a Chance of Hops'

One of the breweries that seems to be going from strength to strength is Wishbone of Keighley. They started brewing about  3 years ago and although I found their beers decent, they never seemed to have the wow factor. More recently I have have sampled some of their output that have been excellent, and this week they have the 'Beer Of The Week' accolade. And well deserved.

My choice was 'Cloudy with a Chance of Hops'.  This is a collaboration with Stockport based Thirst Class and is produced in both cask and keg. I sampled the cask version.

They website reveals it is their take on a New England IPA, and as suggested by the name is unfined. It contains a combination of Ahtahnum, Mosaic, and Nelson Sauvin hops, so there is a massive hop hit and it is 5.9% so it has plenty of body and mouthfeel.

I sampled it at the Victoria Cafe Bar in Halifax where they have both the cask and keg versions.
