Delayed in getting to work today after problems with the train, but in the bigger picture it wasn't that bad. First day back at work after the new year was a solid one with lots of orders, a bit of Web stuff, and some good'ol box cutting!

Went for this big ol'bottle after a push from James. Double IPA in a more classic ale like bottle with a pretty uninspiring white label showing the name and a dash of rainbow colours.

So, opening this up with my girlfriend, the first smell was very feint indeed. Just a malty bubbling and slight tropical hint. The swig brought on a slight hoppy hit with a pineapple and mango tropical flavour. Have to say the finish wasn't enjoyable though, just too malty with an extra pineapple kick at the end....just wasn't balanced well for me. Drink had punch, but just not in the right places for my kind of tipple.

As always, I hope you enjoyed my personal review, but why not come into Beercraft of Bath and try it for yourself!...🍺🤓 Han
