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.

Cheers, and happy Thursday everyone!

First whiff was a light coffee one with a light sweetness just behind, but you could tell there was something goid on it's way. My following swig was a thick coffee and chocolate taste that you could tell was just packed and full with quality. At the end was a sweet berry finish that just took the edge of the stout being too heavy and balanced...a perfect touch.

First smell is that classic floral and feint tropical one, very light. The following swig had that nice fruity flavour on a very lightly hopped delivery, but I just didn't get that blueberry hit. There was a subtle dab at the back of the mouth, but I could really barely notice it and was expecting a lot more punch. I'm not a huge blueberry fan, however I was interested to see what this can would offer....unfortunately, I'll be waiting for that blueberry beer experience.

The can has the classic Polly's drip on top of a luscious flowery background. First smell is a rich coffee and almost chocolatey vibe with a tantalising raspberry essence to finish. The following taste was a lot lighter than I expected, but still had a certain fullness to it...the bonus was a lot stronger raspberry hit that was really well balanced.
