For a while I was completely in love with Green Bullet hops, but you don’t tend to find it in beer very often.
However, this little IPA from Brinkburn St. is crammed with it, along with a hit of Mandarin Bavaria, and it makes me very happy indeed.
But let’s start at the beginning.
The Pursuit Of Hoppiness is a pale sunny straw coloured beer with a fuzzy little head and a lemon, melon and honeysuckle aroma, and those initial smells burst out at you as you take a swig, the malt creating a brown sugar, biscuit, honey and waffle body over which the hops get to work with their honeydew melon, lemon zest, sharp steely herbal leaves, soft satsuma fruitiness and a great big thwack of pithy bitter, dry as a bone grapefruit peel.
This is a very good beer indeed.
