Marble Brewery Murk Du Soleil (9%)

A collaboration with Hop Burns & Black, this Double IPA is a, “New Zealand take on a New England IPA,” and it’s very good indeed.
It pours a slightly hazy pale gold and has a smell that gets right up your nose with its tropical fruit punch.
There’s a rich creamy malt body, smooth from the hefty addition of oats, you’ll find shortcrust pastry, Rich Tea biscuits, honey and caramel, and over it lots and lots of hoppy goodness.
Mango and kiwi, lime leaves, a touch of chive, orange marmalade and lemon sherbet before a good hit of chest warming alcohol drives you into the long bitter finish.
