Neon Raptor - Chasing Cheetahs

Neon Raptor - Chasing Cheetahs

Solid day at work today with a nice jaunt on my break round town and the prospect of a nice train Beer to finish. Unfortunately, my other half missed the train due to unforeseen circumstances, so I had to put up with my own terrible company for an hour which wasn't ideal.

To start, the can design has the bright neon sign of Neon Raptor covering a cheetah print design with cheetahs in full stride running around the graphic.

On opening the can you just smell that thick, juicy flavour full of pineapples, mangos and a delicious sweetness. The first taste carried on the adventure as the all those full tastes were enjoyed followed by that sour gose ending which did all but make my eyes water. A bit of a salty after taste kept the balance perfectly and just pulled you back in for that follow up swig though.

As the mouthfuls continued, the punch and flavours didn't dissipate with new combinations cropping up over and over again. This is just a really brilliantly done drink which doesn't make a single mistake in it's balance and delivery. 35 minutes and still trying to lag it out....give it a go!

Cheers!

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.
