After spending several months bored of NEIPA’s, I’ve had a few recently that have piqued my interest again.
And this is one of them.
Twisted Barrel have created a creamy round chewy malt body of caramel doughnuts, honey and brioche and coupled this with a single hopping of Centennial, hitting you square in the mush with sharp and woody hazel hedgerow, pithy green herbs, some mown lawn cuttings and a big splash of zesty zingy sherbet lemons.
Bubbling away underneath is a warm and earthy yeast bite, lightly spiced and full of peach flesh fruitiness, it adds a comforting fruity sweetness to the bitter finish.
