Pressure Drop - The Gradients

Pressure Drop - The Gradients

A Friday that never seemed to slowdown, followed by a walk in the rain as the masses were off to see @bathrugby play at The Rec. Anyway, a James recommendation tonight was my tipsy-train tipple to wind down with... The can has 6 jet fighters flying along on a hazy blue background in a photo wraparound. So, the first whiff after a surprisingly sound can opening was one of tropical, thick, sticky fruits with medium hoppy sense in the background. 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. It was certainly a dry beer (as the DDH would suggest) with a bitter kick at the end to follow those juicy pineapple and zesty flavours.

Certainly a quality drink with good ingredients, but just not enough pop for me, and I'm not a huge fan of such a pineapple heavy taste with the bitter finish.

Happy friday everyone...Cheers!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. 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.

To be honest, a shit can opening, but my saviour came in the rich malty smells that were produced with the immediate picture of chocolate soaked sponge fingers coming into my thoughts. The first swig doubled down on that with a lovely tiramisu/brownie coating of the mouth, and quite frankly a liquefied malt-chocolate dessert!
