Suspect Device is a cheekily named Double IPA brewed in collaboration with Northern Ireland’s Farmageddon Brewing Co-Op.
Do you see what they’re playing with here?
As I said, cheeky.
But it’s the kind of irreverent cheek that I’m a sucker for.
And what’s more, this is the kind of bombastic IPA that I’m a sucker for.
Suspect Device pours a deep Amber and stinks of boozy kids sweets, carrots and fruit salad.
There’s a big fat malting that’s packed with gloopy toffee and crunchy biscuits, honey and pancakes, and the hops are super sticky with pine sap, sharp with lime zest, rich with orange marmalade and edged with green herbal leaves.
All this makes for a big beer with a warm alcohol heart and a long bitter finish.
