It feels like an eternity since Polly's last brewed one of their big hitting DDH Pale Ales.
With the festive season having come and gone, and Birthday Beers now a thing of the past, they've had a yearning for what they think is the most underrated branch of their output - taking all that flavour intensity of their big hitting IPAs and DIPAs, but reeling it back to a relatively sessionable strength.
In Violet is Polly's brew team letting loose and doing what they do best; fully employing their now-signature pyramid dry-hopping technique, this time letting new school classic Mosaic go big with all its super juicy tropical notes, before smaller additions of Amarillo and Chinook do the job of keeping everything in check with grassy pine notes.
Juicy, smashable, and totally sessionable.
