Elusive Brewing eXXtra Life (6.2%)

Brewed in collaboration with Unity Brewing Co., this is a decent little IPA brewed with a traditional Belgian yeast strain, Belgian Pilsner malt and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.
The result is a beer that has that distinct smell of say Delirium or Duvel, sweet and rich and slightly steely.
And from the first mouthful you realise you’re in for a bit of a Belgian experience, the malting is all waffles and honey and the hops are a sharp thwack of steely herbal leaves, hedgerow greenery, lemon zest and a dab of marmalade.
And all the while the yeast is bubbling away with its warm earthy slickness that adds extra depth to the dry bitter finish.
