After my last few cans of Neon Raptor beer had been, to be blunt, a bit dodgy, it’s good to open a can that does exactly what I want it to.
This is a NEIPA that pours cloudy, smells like a fruit salad and tastes much the same.
There’s nothing mind blowing here, just honest to goodness well brewed beer that delivers everything you want in this style.
The yeast brings a background hum of peaches and apricots, lightly spiced and a little bit earthy, while there’s a big sweet chewy malt body full of creamy caramel wafers and honey glazed pancakes.
The hops are heavy with orange marmalade, lemon bonbons and fleshy papaya that bring a round fresh fruity sweetness to the otherwise sharp finish.
