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!

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
