Arbor Ale - Massive Azacc
Train was late to start the day and my shortened lunch break walkies was celebrated by the heavens opening overhead, so was looking forward to a relieving beer. Due to my new found love of New England pale ales, James picked out this 5.4% 568ml (1 pint) beer to give a try on this Tuesday journey.After taking a seat that the other half had grabbed me, I sat down and got ready to take a swig. First off, it's a simple burnt orange can design with an autumnal leaf coloured drawing. Reasonably basic, but the size and contrast still make it pop on the shelf.Very airy, soft citrusy smells when I first smoothly opened the can, with those feint El Dorado hops humming in the background. The taste test was very vibrant indeed! Juicy and tropical tastes being delivered on a very hoppy flavour, before that bitter buzz at the end really kicked in. Usually, I'm not a fan of a strong bitter after-taste, but I have to say it was balanced really well against the hoppy start and fruity flavours that shoot alongside it.38 minutes in, and as a pint size drink it was a throughly enjoyable train tipple and to be honest I probably could have had another very easily. Nicely flavoursome, powerful delivery and one I'd 'hoppily' (boooooo!) have again.Cheers!Han @tipsy_train_blogger
