Verdant - Bloom

Verdant - Bloom

Day which had a few ups and downs, but decent overall and I was definitely happy it was a Friday! Went for a beer of my choice tonight which I was hoping would be a quality tipple for the ride home on my lonesome.

It's a vivid green hoppy design for this very hoppy drink, with 'Bloom' spelt out using hop pictures and a very leafy and verdant background. After another pants can opening, the smell that hit me was full of lightly floating floral and zesty scents with a bit of a hoppy hit behind them.

The taste test didn't disappoint as those hops wrap around the fruity ingredients with a real full favour with lots of volume. Have to say that I love the vibrancy that New England IPA's offer, and this drink didn't let me down. I didn't get much of the caramel or liquorice that the can says is on offer, but that solid bitterness is there in a fantastically balanced way that keeps you coming back. Definitely alot on offer in this drink and it would certainly give anyone alot of pleasure whether alone on a train, or in a bar with people called friends...

Cheers everyone!

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.
