Intro: A 440ml can, packaged on 12th November 2018, and with a best before date of 12th March 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice hazy golden yellow orange colour with one finger white fluffy head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: A bit light, but there’s melon, papaya, grapefruit rind, grass, onion and straw.
Taste: Bitter, unripe tropical fruits with touches of melon and papaya. Grapefruit, grass, straw, slightly dank, citrus peel.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, somewhat dry, light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: There was fruit, but it was largely unripe and less flavourful. The crispness was nice, but it didn’t feel as dry as I’d expect from a Brut IPA. I think overall it was ok, but not a top Brut IPA.
