Brewed with El Dorado, Bru 1, Citra and Mosaic this is a big bright and fruity NEIPA.
And it does everything you want from this style, with a malt body that’s soft and squidgy, all honey and caramel, biscuits and doughnuts, and the earthy sweet bruised fruit of the yeast.
The aroma is full of peach, mango and pineapple, and the beer holds a nice little frothy head.
As for the hops, well they’re bold and sharp, snappy with nettle greenery, soft with melon and tangerine, and zingy with lemon zest and lime leaves.
And with a long and lingering bitter finish, this is a lovely introduction to this Middlesbrough brewery.
