Salopian Brewery Boomerang (6.9%)

BoomerangAnother beautifully presented new beer from Salopian who, over the last few months, appear to have moved up and into a whole new realm of brewing.
Where Oracle and their flagship Darwin’s Origin were and are brilliant, Vertigo, Automaton and now Boomerang are quite simply a class apart.
Boomerang is an Antipodean Pale Ale hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka and Galaxy and gives you a pungent tropical fruit sweetie, melon, papaya and kiwi aroma and a big frothy head.
There’s a mouth filling chewy toffee malt that feels really satisfying as it melts away leaving behind a runny honey coated peanut brittle that hands you a super hoppy blast of fresh leafy herbs and then masses of grapefruit, passion fruit, sherbet and mandarin peel with just a hint of rolling tobacco.
The finish is a sharp, clean, bitter smack with a lemony stick and it leaves a bruise that you’ll want to show off.
As I said at the start, Salopian are moving on up.
Errr, look out!

    Salopian deserve national recognition. They’ve been brewing ‘hop forward’ beers since they first set up and well before Brewdog started imitating Sierra Nevada. What they’re achieving with the limitations of their current kit is impressive, and the regular awards speak for themselves, but with the new brew kit they’re lining up I think we can expect some world class stuff in the near future.
