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...
