Arbor have been a favourite for a long time now and they continue to impress with their quality and style.
Shanghai-La is a dreaded Session IPA, but Arbor manage to get that so often lacking malt balance that tarnishes so many beers of this style.
Here you find a subtle but solid chewy caramel, runny honey and waffle body across which the hops slap you with lemon curd and grapefruit zest, fizzy sherbet and mango.
All this makes for a beer with a long crisp finish.
