Amundsen - Chuggernaut

Amundsen - Chuggernaut

End of my working week and James's recommendation was made to broaden my horizons in the realms of New England IPA'S. As he handed it over I couldn't help but be impressed by the artwork! Vibrant maroon, green and turquoise colours bring a floating spaceman to life across the can as he stretches across the galaxy...it's pretty damn cool!

With a confident triple tap to the base of the can and slow opening, a very gentle aroma filtered through with feint hops already working their way out. First taste was a deliciously smooth and creamy intake with a tropical, juicy layering which seemed beautifully balanced. A gentle malted wheat was ever present, but there was no bitterness to finish and no punch to the drink at any stage.

The Chuggernaut is certainly a drink you could chug if you so wished with its smooth flowing taste, but taking your time sipping on a chilled train ride home seems a great option to me. This particular New England IPA certainly has a different feel with its more mellow citrusy flavours complimenting the creamier feel, but it's certainly one that I'd highly recommend you try to potentially open up a whole new range of beers.

39 minutes and still sipping and savouring the taste. That's all for now and I'll catch you in a couple of days.

Cheers!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
