Brighton Bier Fresh Prince Of Norway (9%)

This, Brighton Bier’s Imperial IPA is, in a word, marvellous.
It’s big and fruity and unashamedly boozy and it presses all the buttons you want pressing by this beer style.
Pouring a bright amber with a fluffy white head, the smell is a massive blast of tropical fruit sweets and alcoholic jelly tots, and taking a swig you are assaulted by super sharp and bitter hops.
They’re all in your face with lime leaves and sherbet lemons, orange marmalade, metallic herbal leaves and just a hint of aniseed, fizzing and full of life, they make your tongue tingle.
Underneath them there’s a very good malt body that’s full of toffee popcorn, shortcake and runny honey.
All this and a chest warming brandy heat that amplifies the flavours and rounds out the superbly bitter finish.
