Cloudwater DDH Pale review by cider loverrr, Davin

Coudwater DDH Pale Ale

Now im a fan of craft pale ales as usually the ddh IPAs are sometimes on the bitter side for me. 

But with a strap line like “bold & punchy” i thought id give it a go. 

Lovely thick pour, perfectly hazy, just as you would expect from cloudwater, although a slight orange tinge. Bright white head that disappeared quite quickly. 

Is that orange tinge giving subliminal messages and giving me a tangerine on the nose?  Add to that a bit of pineapple and even apple. 

The smoothness smothers your tongue. A really gentle bitterness starts at the tip of the tongue and slowly moves backwards as it develops. Its a long lasting bitterness, but its so light. Almost creamy, slightly peachy with the soft furry skin attached. 

Eating it with a curry, it had no problem cutting through the strong flavours and they worked really well together. 

Who’d of thought cold beer and a hot spicy curry would go so well?!

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.
