Pentrich Brewing Co. Heavy Metal Jacket (8.5%)

Brewed as part of Pentrich’s Fifth Anniversary celebrations, Heavy Metal Jacket (top name by the way), is a rather good Imperial IPA.
It pours a thick and creamy peach colour and smells of boozy mango sorbet.
The malting is thick and deep, rich with caramel and honey, and packed with biscuits and shortcake, it brings brown sugar syrup to the body of the beer and works well against the fruity salt and pepper of the yeast.
The Citra and Mosaic hops do what you’d expect, kissing you with yards of lemon zest and orange peel, fresh zingy greenery, marmalade, sherbet and peach, all of which is pushed along by a deliciously dry, gin clear alcohol warmth.
Great stuff.
