“Low Power Mode by name, high hop intensity by flavour experience. We have given this DDH IPA our heftiest dry hop to date. Packed with Citra Cryo, Cashmere Cryo, Sabro and Strata, this is one for the hop lovers out there. The colour is light golden and super hazy. Cashmere Cry comes out hard in the aromas with melon being at the forefront, followed by light hints of overripe mango. On the palate there is a bursting array of pineapple, melon and mango, with a distinctive bitterness that really lets you know you’re drinking a DDH IPA. Hop lovers only.”
Appearance: Turbid mustard colour with a shade of pastel orange. It forms a short and loosely packed head which retreats to the rim. Spotty lace sticks as we go.
Aroma: Crammed full of ripe fleshy stonefruit and tropical fruits such as paw paw/papaya, rockmelon, peach, mango, pineapple and apricot. Definitely has the brekky juice character dialled in. Some fleeting hints of orange citrus, dank weedy herbals, nectar and coconut flakes. Grainy, cereal malt profile nicely woven through. Smells the goods!
Flavour: Starts fresh, juicy and full of stonefruit and other mixed fruits like pineapple, paw paw and passion fruit. Pithy citrus really comes to a head midway and continues in to a slightly dry and mildly bitter finish with dank herbals/weedy notes and hop oils on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth AF. Some bitterness in the swallow. Medium body, sparkling Co2. The 7.5% ABV isn’t without a little bite.
Overall: Hot damn fresh IPA is so freakin good. This bad boy is only 10 days old which is amazing considering it’s come from Brissy too. Cracking Hazy, Range really are one of the best in the business.
