I’ve read somewhere that this beer has been named after a Joy Division song, but not being a fan (oh, the blasphemy!) I don’t know for sure and I can’t be arsed to, “Google it up,” as my youngest daughter puts it.
Wherever the name comes from, this is a solid Double IPA that pours a slightly cloudy pale peach and smells of mango jelly.
The malting is big and chewy, sweet with brown sugar syrup dunked waffles and honey glazed brioche, it’s a mouth filling delight and it makes a good platform on which the hops give you bundles of peach and passion fruit, mango and guava wrapped up in pithy herbal leaves and a blob of marmalade.
All this goodness is pushed along by a warm and clear gin-like booziness.
A very good beer indeed.
