Galaxy, Simcoe and Galena hops combine to make this BIPA a booze fuelled jelly sweet delight.
Recently I’ve been sent a whole bunch of home brewed beer and so far it’s all been superb.
This one pours a deep chocolate or ruby red and smells of tropical fruit salad doused in rum.
The malts are dark and almost smoky, tinged with burned digestive biscuits and rich with treacle and honey, and the hops are chewy sweets and flying saucers, and then mandarins and lime leaves, grapefruit, lemon pips and mown lawns.
All this makes for a bitter dry finish to a beer that hides its ABV frighteningly well.
A big thanks to Alec (@alecwallace01) for sending me this bottle.
