This looks, smells, tastes and feels remarkably like Victory’s Hop Devil.
Not that that’s a bad thing in any way.
Hop Ottin’ IPA pours a thick orange marmalade and smells of orange juice, hibiscus and wood resin, and has a light spice to it.
What we have here is a really powerful, volume up to full India Pale Ale with malts that are thick with toffee and burned sugar bitterness, lots of cracked mixed peppercorns, a pinch of paprika and a load of fizzy sherbet.
The hops are mega bitter and dry, rich with lemongrass and pine resin and lots and lots of super sharp lime juice, grapefruit flesh and juicy jelly sweeties.
All this and a finish so crisp and dry and long and bitter that it leaves you with eyes out on storks.
