Brewer Description: (from can) Our all-season DDH Pale provides a balance between a juicy, full-bodied IPA and easy drinking Pale. ‘DDH’ means this Pale has been double dry hopped, using twice the amount of hops as our standard Pale. It delivers big citrus flavours and a smooth body, with a juicy tang and a peppery character on the finish.

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 23rd October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very nice hazy orange colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Slightly mild, but there’s mango, orange zest, lemon peel and dashes of pine.
Taste: Juicy, light mango and peach, followed by lots of citrus zing, orange, orange rind and lemon peel.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: A great Pale Ale that is just so easy to drink. Aroma was perhaps a bit light, but flavour was right up my alley with a good balance of tropical and citrus fruits.
