The Tipsy-Train Beer Blog with Arbor Ales' Massive Azacc

Arbor Ale - Massive Azacc

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!
