Rooster’s Brewing Co. Fort Smith (5%)

Fort SmithI opened this IPA and poured it and before I got a chance to taste it I’d already been blown away by the smell.
You see Fort Smith smells so beautifully like passion fruit and peaches that it could almost be a perfume.
It smells delicious.
Oh, and when I finally got my nose out of it and took a swig, it tasted great too.
There’s a malt that’s soft and chewy and carries enough caramel sweetness and peppercorn crunch to create an excellent body that becomes a great platform for the hops.
And the hops here are marvellous.
Lots of bitter lemon and hibiscus, passion fruit and a touch of lavender and patchouli.
Not to mention a Love Hearts sweetie fizz and a side order of kiwi fruit.
The finish kicks in long and extremely bitter and dry and refuses to leave for ages.
What a terrific IPA this is.
