Mobberley Brewhouse - Autumn IPA

Mobberley Brewhouse - Autumn IPA

Decent day at work and I even managed to get a bit of sun on the ol'face at lunch! Unfortunately, Jack has since told me that it's rain and cold from now on, so this evenings beer was pretty vital in pulling me back from the brink of despair. With this in mind i decided to take a slight risk and give you another blog on one of the new beers into the shop.

Alone on the train tonight as the girlfriend got home early, but that didn't stop me from trying to use the can pull tab in the not pre-marked place for about twenty seconds....embarrassing!

Anyways, upon opening the smell is very light with hops just hanging around, but something about it was preparing me for a bit of a flavoursome drink. First swig did not disappoint with a citrusy rush hitting me on the back of super strong simcoe hops that really pack a wake up punch. There's a light juicyness and soft feel to the drink, but you've certainly got that powerful IPA also marking it's territory. The hops certainly took control, but that very, very light bitterness and not too heavy feel in the mouth meant that I kept coming back for more with no doubt at all.
Such a collection of flavours makes this a drink that is memorable, but I'm not sure it's balanced quite to my tastebuds to enjoy again and again. If you want fruityness with a punch though, then give it a whirl.

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.
