Pomona Island Brew - I Wanna Meet That Dad!

Pomona Island Brew - I Wanna Meet That Dad!

Picking and packing all day today after a busy weekend on the interweb for the shop, so I was looking forward to sitting down for my tipsy-train beer tonight.

James put this one forward as I couldn't make my mind up with all the choice, so I was eager to see how the recommendation went down. It's an all baby pink can with what to me looks like a bit slab of steak on a bone spit...but please be sure to correct me!

Assured opening of the can led to a light and very strong zesty smell come my way, a deliciously fresh hit. The proceeding swig, that I was eager to take, had that light citrusy tone, but was still full of fruity flavours. Then, there was the powerful punch of those Simcoe Cryo, Citra BBC, Mosaic & Amarillo hops! There's just a gorgeous taste that you can really get your teeth into from those double dry hops...really keeps you coming back for more.

Not quite the variety of flavours to keep each mouthful different and exciting, but still a quality beer that you should give a crack.

Happy monday, and cheers 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.
