Black Iris Brewery - Chasing The Sun

Good day at work where I got to use my slightly below average sized brain a bit more for some marketing malarkey. Jack's suggestion for the special Friday choice tonight, although I'm feeling there may have been regional bias... The can has a huge voodoo like skull on the front with a few stars behind all on a stark black and white colour set...really quirky.

So, first smell was very light and airy, but with a definite tropical storm on the horizon. The following taste was just fantastic, such a smooth, almost creamy, delivery base with bouncy hops coming along and a full topical taste packed with flavour! Each taste after that must repeated the same again and again. Brilliant drink and I'm very interested to let you know how the rest of their offerings match up to this flagship.

Anyway, have a fantastic Friday and cheers!

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.
