I picked this beer up from the brewery on the day of release.
It pours murky orange with a small, creamy white head - definitely murky enough to stand up against the other DIPAs of the UK! The nose has a lot of pulpy tropical fruits, melon, papaya, mango. Medium to big sweet flavour with lots more dense, chewy tropical fruits, tons of mango, some peach, orange juice, tangerine, soft piney bitterness. The beer drinks quite easily, despite being rather full bodied. The condition and carbonation are restrained but present enough to lift the bulk. Lightly warming in the finish, fat and juicy, the beer has lots more vibrant tropical fruit character to bestow.
There's lots to like here. It’s a plump and juicy affair. Awesome, really.
