After getting only four hours sleep last night, today was pretty damn decent. Put a deposit on a flat with the missus, then spent some time with a big swan who seemed to like me in Bath.
Anyway, this special edition beer features @rickylightfoot , a record breaking Cumbrian based trail runner, going over a rocky outcrop with a mountainous vista behind...definitely unique and eye catching on the shelf.
Smoothish can opening was met with same very full citrusy and floral smells coming at me. The first swig came in with a strong hoppy hit delivered on a really creamy, light zesty flavour. The hops are certainly full bodied and give your mouth a wake up call, but there isn't much of a finishing bitterness which I expected and was personally happy not to feel.
That buzz and mixture of tropical flavours that the New England IPA supplies does not disappoint here, plus that double dry hopped kick takes things to another level. I'm a fan of that of that creamy, smooth backing to a craft beer anyway, but all things considered, I'd really recommend you grab yourself a can at your next opportunity.
