Fanny Pit IPA

Post by Oli1979 » Mon Apr 06, 2015 5:31 pm

Fanny Pit IPA 5.2%
Its a beer from the Morley homebrew bottle swap that i got.

So its basically a black IPA.

I was suprised when i poured this, as i wasn't expecting it to be a Black IPA. Not sure what inspired the name?

Good carbonation, good creamy head.
Resinous taste of hops, most likely US hops.
Nice body, not too roasty.
Overall a cracking pint, something similar to what i have previously brewed.
Top marks overall.
The alcohol level was not overpowering.
Good pint, i would gladly pay for this in a pub.
9/10.
:D

Interesting name :D


American - Arse pit. hmmm,

English - Ladybits pit. More appealing tbf

Scottish - Idiot pit . Well, Black IPA is a horrible term for a beer so I guess this is the correct version? :lol:

Sounds like a good drink though =D>
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C

Fanny Pit was a coal mine near Leeds.

However, it was named after the owner's daughter, so any of the above interpretations could still apply, with each one having significantly dark connotations :)
