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 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.
