Hell’s bells, this is a good New England DIPA.
It’s big and bold, thick and chewy.
The Citra and Mosaic hops work hand in hand with the yeast to create an aroma full of peach stones and lemon curd and a flavour you can dive down into.
The size of the fruit flavours is almost overwhelming, lemon bonbons and mango flesh, green grape skins and passion fruit edged with a slap of steely green leaves, I could go on but you get the idea.
The yeast adds a rich earthiness, slightly spicy but still fruity, while the malt is sweet and sticky, all honey coated Belgian Waffles, salted popcorn and shortbread.
In the finish you start to feel the clean sting of gin as the alcohol takes hold, pushing the soft bitter sweetness forward.
