Brewed with Mosaic and Enigma, this is an absolutely superb Pale Ale, and bottled on the twelfth of December, which is only three weeks ago, it also tastes as fresh as a daisy.
Pouring a hazy straw gold the aroma is kiwi and mango and orange grove foliage, and taking a swig transports me directly to my childhood, walking in the Jamaican Blue Mountains, the leaves so deeply green they begin to look blue and the stalls selling tangerines that are so fresh they tingle.
And that’s because the hops here are pin sharp with satsuma and orange zest, sherbet lemons, kiwi and mango, tropical and exciting and bold.
The malts offer a solid caramel, ice cream cone and shortcake base that provides just the right body to support all the hoppy goodness.
And my goodness this is goodness.
