With a love for reading aggressive untapped reviews and a willingness to give people something to moan about in 2017 Joe and Tom set up Brotherhood brewery based in Westbury.
Using four of Joe’s favourite hops Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado this beer, 'Back in the Day', packs as much fruit flavours as it does a punch with a 6.2% ABV. This is one hell of a juiced up NEIPA with lashing of apricot hints of mango and a small bite from the Citra. The finish leaves a smooth bubblegum/star burst fruity sweetness. After sampling this 4 times I can say it’s defiantly worth a try it’s a great local brewery making some exciting beers.
We can expect to see plenty more new craft beers from these guys with 7 new crafty beers coming soon!
A NEIPA is essentially an unfiltered IPA or Double IPA that’s been aggressively hopped. Appearance ranges from slightly hazy or cloudy to opaque or muddy. Dry-hopping, the use of high-protein grains (flours, flaked oats, wheat), certain yeast strains, water chemistry, CO2 levels, and other techniques may also contribute to the beer’s haze and mouth feel. But the overall goal is typically a hazy, juicy IPA packed with fruity and floral flavors.
