Bristol Beer Factory Un/Limited Double IPA (8.5%)

Double IPA - 1This is extremely good.
It’s all about hops.
Lots of hops.
Cone and pellet.
Hops hops hops.
Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo and Centennial all working together to pummel you into submission.
From the lemon rind blast of the aroma to the wild ride across your tastebuds, this is about hops in extremis.
A big bucketful of mandarin and satsuma skin, kiwi, lime and lychee, peach, melon and pine needles, along with a sexy warm woodiness.
But because this is a very good beer indeed the malts don’t get lost under the weight of all this hop porn.
Not at all.
This is a beery ménage à trois, the malts kissing you softly with their digestive and toffee smeared honey lips, soothing the sting of the hops as they ride you into oblivion before leaving you with a dry, bitter tang and a warm boozy hug.
