Juicy tropical notes the bold and juicy Citra hops – then doubled. This DIPA has an earthy backbone punctuated with spice and a sweet rich maltiness.
Look: Pours a golden, hazy light brown with a small white head with a nice level of carbonation slow-dancing up the glass
Aroma: Pineapple, passionfruit and caramel with those sharp bold Citra hops
Taste: Adding to the citrus you get mango, lime, pine and gooseberry with a slight sweetness and a little more malt than you’d usually expect with these juicy flavours.
Verdict: Refreshing and dangerously drinkable for such a strong malty, sugary beer. This is a big beer with a juicy charcter. To quote Simon Martin Real Ale Craft Beer YouTube: “Boom”.
Food Pairing: This beer works well with the tangs of South East Asia. Try it with a Thai red curry for a spicy, herby flavour festival.
