This oddly monikered 'Clump Sagin' IPA is extremely bitter, with gloriously grapefruit lip-tingling after taste. I have supped many robust IPAs like Clump Sagin in the past but they often seem to fall back on higher alcohol content to zang that zing - Adnams appear to have taken the more adventurous path of keeping the alcohol percentage a relatively low (genre-speaking) 5%. While I adore the palate-attack of brutal IPAs like Brewdog Hardcore IPA my head does not.
Clump Sagin is certainly not a session-ale, but if the rest of the new range of Adnams adventurous ales are as nice to sip as this ale I await them with the thirst of a thousand deserts.

P.S I can also heartily recommend Adnams gin, it's so nice I drink it neat.
P.P.S I'm on the waiting list for the Adnams whisky; oh boy!
