I’m pretty certain that I know the chaps at Dig Brew, probably through Cotteridge Wines, though I can’t be absolutely sure.
Know them or not, this DIPA is damned good.
It’s thick and chewy, full of honey smothered pancakes, waffles and toffee from its malts, and lots and lots of hoppy sexiness.
Lemon bonbons and orange marmalade, lime curd, garden herbs and hazel leaves all slap you about with fresh green pithy goodness.
This is a beer that tries to be big and dry and bitter, only to be held in check by a round gloopy heart that leaves the finish at once bitter, sweet, and steeped in a boozy brandy warmth.
