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.
