BrewDog New England IPA (6.8%)

This beer is all about Cloudwater.
In fact, I’d go so far as to say it feels and tastes more like Cloudwater rented out BrewDog’s brewery than a collaboration.
And that’s a good thing.
While this isn’t a patch on Cloudwater’s DIPA series, or indeed any of their own IPA’s, it’s the best IPA to come out of BrewDog for some time.
Pouring a thick and cloudy gold with a big fluffy head the smell is a bouquet of honeysuckle, passion flower and peach.
The body of the beer is smooth and creamy thanks to the addition of lots of oats, and the malting provides a vanilla pancake, honey and shortbread backbone over which the hops hit you with passion fruit and mango, lime leaves, lemon zest and a sweet glob of orange marmalade.
All in all pretty good.
Cloudwater don’t half make good beer.
