This tipple was sampled on my last night of freedom before heading back to work. Decided to try this one to go with a delicious Mushroom risotto made by the other half.

A cool @insa_gram designed can for this one that shows some fantastically vivid greens and purples on a web like background.

First smell was of a fruity and tropical beer, but not too in your face, almost just waiting to be released. The following taste put all that into action with a huge hoppy hit that had heavy loads of grapefruit, passionfruit and obviously pineapple. After that there was a bit of difference in every swig, with dry-hopped notes and bitter finishes chucked into the can. Not special, special, but a really good offering that you won't be disappointed in.

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

Fresh and citrusy smells fire out after the can opening, just what I needed. First swig doesn't have that hoppy punch you may expect from an IPA, but a creaminess contains those flavours and delivers them in a different way. The punchyness is there with that lactose mouthfeel that coats the tongue really nicely, which gives a smooth delivery of those beautifully balanced ingredients.

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
