“Fluffy, lush, silky & smooth. A far reaching gossamer-like hop complexity with soft florets of tangerine, lime, tropical fruit, & coconut. Our Four Ways of Oat processing, together with creamy Australian lactose, help to take the density of feel and flavour to new heights. Softest of water and a novel yeast provide the upmost cushy comfort. All coalesce into the First Version of our exploration series of this style, and the lofty heights of where the fluff can go. Layers upon layers of creamy smooth mango and sultry ripe naval orange make for the most insatiable cloud drinking experience one could hope to float across.”
Appearance: Turbid mustard/sandy yellow pour with a loosely packed three finger head. It quickly reduced but manages a thick soapy lace down the walls of the glass.
Aroma: Wow it invades the olfactory’s with its fleshy stonefruit, oatmeal, vanilla and mixed citrus. It feels really dense and doughy yet well countered by the direct citrus i.e lemon, grapefruit and orange blossom. Lactose-a-plenty, coconut, soft herbal/weedy notes, pine/sappy resins and hop oils also getting amongst it.
Flavour: Super resinous and herbal, a bit dank too. Sappy pine, mango, unripened paw paw, mixed citrus, creamy oatmeal, vanilla and toasted coconut. Hits a slightly pithy note midway then leads in to a dry and kinda yeasty finish with lingering herbals and resin on the back end.
Mouthfeel: As described perfectly on the can – “fluffy, silky and smooth”. Medium body, lightly sparkling Co2. 7.1% ABV is fairly well behaved.
Overall: We like it. Yeah it’s no Mountain Culture or Garage Project but it’s smooth and creamy AF. Nicely balanced flavours to boot. Solid.
