Polly's Brew Co - Citra Enigma Pale Ale

Polly's Brew Co - Citra Enigma Pale Ale

Long day at work which even included pulling a couple of jars, but I was definitely looking forward to a tipsy-train tipple. A Jack offering tonight, so I hope my previous undying trust in him is still standing by the morning... Classic can design from Polly's Brew with what looks like bent wooden planks interwoven with metals...I maybe way off though!

Things went well this time as the tab didn't push the can opening in and I had to live life on the edge and do it with my finger....scary. The proceeding taste was fruity and citrusy though with a definite hoppiness floating behind. The flavours are delivered on a really smooth base where the fruits get to pop a bit, then a pretty feint bitterness to finish. It's not a 'crotch grabbingly' amazing drink, but you can tell the quality of ingredients and balance that's been put into this...something I'd go for again as a nice chillout beverage.

Cheers everyone!

No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
