Pirate Life Brewing IIPA (8.8%)

Pirate Life of Australia are coming to the UK in cans and if this Imperial IPA is anything to go by I’m very pleased that they’ll be here.
This peachy golden beer with its wispy white head smells of redwood resin and mango, and as you take a mouthful you find that the flavour is underpinned by a big sticky wood resin base.
Around it swim all sorts of other good stuff, like spun sugar and honey, bran flakes and toffee muffins, and a massive bitter hit of hops.
There’s lime zest and hazel leaves, rolling tobacco and grapefruit pith, and then a little blob of marmalade before you are returned to the resinous stickiness that glues itself to the roof of your mouth and pushes you into the super dry bitter finish of this very good beer.
