Villages Brewery Smooth Big Cat (8%)

Brewed in collaboration with Drop Project, this is a superb DIPA.
It slinks thick and creamy from its can, it’s frothy head popping and fizzing, and it smells of pineapple chunks and apricots.
There’s a superb brown sugar syrup, bagel, waffle, caramel and honey malt body.
It’s sweet and smooth and it creates a solid malt body.
The London Ale III yeast brings peach and apricot stones sprinkled with earthy spices, and the hops – Talus, Simcoe and Mosaic – pushed along by a superb dry gin boozy heat, slap you with garden herbs, lemon sherbet, orange zest, lime leaves, papaya and chives, that lead you to the most joyously boozy, crisp and bitter finish.
