After my last LOKA POLLY review was a self confessed love letter, I feel I ought to balance things by writing a bad review.
But I can’t do that because this DIPA is abso-bloody-lutely brilliant.
It’s massive and fruity and fun, sexy and deep and warm with booze.
There’s a toffee apple and rum aroma and the beer pours a bright gold from its beautifully clothed can.
The malting is soft and sweet, rich with heather honey, toffee crisp and lightly salted shortcake and the hops are, to put it simply, mountains of sharp bright shining brilliance.
Mango and lime zest, orange marmalade, rolling tobacco, kiwi fruit and flying saucer sweeties carry you along into the warm and sticky boozy finish.
