Siren Craft Brew Forest For The Trees (8.6%)

What a thing of loveliness this Double IPA is, brewed with Crystal and Vienna malts and packed with Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial and Mosaic hops, and including Simcoe and Mosaic Cryo powder, Wood For The agrees pours a deliciously deep amber with a frothy little head and smells of buttery toffee and peaches.
The malt backbone is big and round and chewy, hefty with rum and raisin biscuits, honey and bagels, it’s a brown sugar sweet platform on which the hops dance.
They sashay and sway, before slapping you with orange marmalade, woody rolling tobacco, lemon zest and lime leaves, mown lawns and garden herbs that’s all glued together with a sticky piney resin and pushed along by a boozy brandy brandy warmth that’s chopped up by the dry and pleasingly bitter finish.
