This is a very good Double IPA, a very good one indeed.
Pouring a peachy gold with a fuzzy little head, the aroma is strawberries and honeysuckle.
What I really like here is there’s no booziness, no alcoholic hit, the ABV just moves the beer along, making it feel round and warm without any burn.
That also makes it a bit dangerous as it’s all too easy to drink with its chewy toffee biscuit, honey and salted bagel malting, along with the Ella and El Dorado hops bringing orange marmalade, steely basil leaves, lemon jelly, lime zest and nettle tea.
Right at the end there’s a little hit of soft peach fruitiness from the Lallemand New England yeast that makes the finish soft and satisfying.
