“Our newest double IPA. A brightly tropical beer with a soft, smooth mouthfeel.”
Glassware: IPA glass.
Appearance: Super hazy almost milky straw yellow pour. It caps off with a thumb of puffy and well retained head which weaves a webbed lace trail down the glass.
Aroma: Dead set juice train! Tonnes of tropical fruits, orange citrus and pine are infused with that hallmark creamy lactose sweetness. Subtle grapefruit, frosty fruits, fresh herbs and rolled oats filling it out even further. Quite a hefty malt structure to it as well…hinting at doughy white bread and crackers. Superb!
Flavour: Nice transition from the nose…really focuses on the juicy orange, mango and pineapple with a bit of pithy grapefruit and rind finding its way through. Again that creaminess just mellows it all out. The use of spelt malt is genius as it emphasises some of that tangy citrus but also balances out the pithy finish with its somewhat earthy characteristics.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, husky and raw. It holds a good weight across the palate so they can afford to keep a low co2. Mild-moderate bitterness.
Overall: This is next level NEIPA. Such intense aroma and flavour yet so magnificently balanced. A real pleasure to drink.
