Another beautifully packaged and beautifully executed DIPA from Verdant, this time in collaboration with the Wylam gang.
Comfort Settings pours a thick and sticky peachy gold and smells of honeysuckle and melons.
There’s a great big gloopy malt body, all sticky caramel and chewy honey glazed brioche which is made bigger and bolder by the London Ale Yeast that brings spiced apricots and earthy peach fuzz over which the hops – Ekuanot, Citra, Azacca, El Dorado and Sabro – do their sharp and juicy, fruity thing.
There’s lime jelly and lemon curd, lots of fresh green herbal leaves, steely metallic hedgerow foliage and sweet sherbet bonbons.
The booze in the beer gradually builds, creating a round soft warmth in the bright buzzing finish.
