Banks X Mountain Culture ‘Where Dreams Go To Die’ NEIPA

Rating:

“Originally brewed by Banks Brewing, we have rebrewed this from our own brewery and here is the OG description. “DDH DIPA collab with our buds from Mountain Culture. When you’re brewing with an ultra celebrity like DJ you better give the people what they want. This be where dreams go to die.”

Glassware: Snifter.

Appearance: Certainly looks the goods. Deep pastel orange and turbid AF! It forms an egg shaped two and a bit finger head which retains well. Tonnes of soapy lace clings to the glass as it subsides.

Aroma: Ooohhh very nice. We can’t find any specs on the hop profile anywhere but it smells like it includes a Kiwi hop or two. It’s super resinous and green but it’s also jam packed with tropical fruits like mango, passionfruit, peach and nectarine. It also displays a dry peppery spice, slightly dank herbals/weed, creamy oats, tangy orange citrus and a flutter of frosty fruits. Very solid aroma.

Flavour: It never ceases to amaze us just how smooth a well brewed NEIPA can be. It’s literally like breakfast juice upfront with a nice soft line of resin and weedy herbals cutting through. The nectar-filled fruits i.e passionfruit, peach, nectarine etc jump on board mid-palate and then the creamy oats, peppery spice and stonefruits finish it all off in style.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly smooth and creamy. Medium bodied and finely carbonated. Wow the 8% ABV is really well concealed.

Overall: Another exemplary interpretation here. We only just said we don’t review beer by MC, Range or Banks but here we are again! ? Hey, when it reads MC X Banks one surely has to partake. Excellent drop.
