This single hop IPA is part of Burnt Mill’s Reflection Series and it’s every bit as good as I have come to expect from them.
The beer uses Cascade grown in both the USA and Australia and brings a big punchy fruit basket of an aroma.
Strawberries, apricots and peaches, and that’s just the smell.
Taking a swig you find a solid caramel waffle, honey on white bread toast malt body, along with a little spiciness that I’m presuming is the yeast.
And then there’s the Cascade, with its mix of sherbet lemon, hazel and tea leaves, mango, chive and peach that makes for a finish that is at once sharp and bitter, and yet fleshy and sweet.
