“From three brewers at our Small Batch brewery this hazy & full bodied, juicy IPA is doubly packed full of Amarillo, El Dorado & Citra Hops. Tropical fruit salad flavours abound and are enhanced by the soft German Kolsch yeast.”
Appearance: Turbid deep mustard-like body with a thumb of fizzy white head. It gradually recedes and forms a collar with reasonable lacing.
Aroma: Off the first few whiffs it smells magnificent. Juicy, a little peppery, loads of herbal spice and ripe stonefruit i.e apricot, peach, mango. Pineapple, lychee and other mixed tropical fruits also coming through. Some dankness to it. That classic dry and white bready malt also filling it out. Solid!
Flavour: Tangy citrus hitting the taste buds initially. Followed by your typical brekky juice characters; stonefruit, tropical fruits and soft yeasty notes. Herbal spice and dry doughy malts in the mid leading to a juicy/fruity finish which reveals a touch of pithy citrus.
Mouthfeel: Nicely weighted. Smooth texture with a gentle spritzy Co2. Creamy, a little chalky. 6.6% ABV well positioned.
Overall: Look it’s a good interpretation but like most other Batch beers we’ve tried it’s good without being great. Not a bad drop though.
