Kompaan Hand Langer (8.2%)

Kompaan’s Double IPA is frighteningly easy to drink, its conker red colour and redwood and cherry aroma drawing you down into the glass.
There’s a walnut bread, treacle tart and salted caramel malt body, rich and smooth and chewy, it’ll stick to the back of your teeth and feel like you’ve had a snack while the hops give you bright splashes of lemon sherbet, spoonfuls of orange marmalade and an endless trek through a redwood forest.
And then, in the finish, there’s a chest warmingly deep round brandy booziness that adds extra richness to the tamarind and prunes of the finish.
