Beavertown - Lupuloid IPA

Beavertown - Lupuloid IPA

Beautiful September sunshine in Bath today where I was taking a few pictures and managed a nice riverside stroll complimented a solid day at work. Once again, I was looking forward to my Tipsy-Train Beer and decided to go it alone and make the decision myself with the Beavertown - Lupuloid IPA.

It has to be said that my hunch of which drink to go for was greatly influenced by the fantastic can art. Rocket ships and spaceman attacking a massive green space monster with floating skulls flying around was just too much to ignore!

After boarding the train I was still not feeling confident with my can technique, so I did a subtle below the seat can opening, and for good measure, as there was just enough foam where there could have been a problem if held over my lap.

First off, no strong scent from the opening,  just a gentle waft of citrus and fruitiness with a hoppy bonce in the background. Upon first taste that theme followed, with a really smooth, rolling texture as the light tropical flavours rolled over my tongue. There's a malty and certain hoppy hit during tasting, but not overwhelming and definitely not a harshly bitterness to finish.

This was a really enjoyable drink for the train that I actually think got better as it went along. I started getting additional flavours like apple, lemon and the hoppyness really seemed to bounce as the journey continued.

    Although it's only a 330ml can, it packs a punch at 6.7% and I can honestly say was a really good companion for the 34 minutes it was with me. Highly recommended and I'd g for it again without a second thought.

    Anyway, that's me for today, catch you on the morrow.

    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.

    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.
