Brewery: AF Brew
Style: New England / Hazy IPA
Other Notes: Nuclear powered IPA DDH Idaho 7 x Citra x Simcoe
Brewer Description: (from description on ratebeer) Our first new release of 2018: a nuclear powered NE IPA double dry-hopped with good old Citra and Simcoe, plus a new breed known as Idaho-7. Allegedly, as bright and vivid as the first four 200-watt light bulbs illuminated in 1951 at EBR-I, first Experimental Breeder Reactor located in Idaho desert.

Intro: A 500ml can, canned on 15th October 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy straw yellow colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus pith, orange, mandarin, pine, but also a bit chalky at times.
Taste: Citrusy, lots of pith and rind, juicy, with a touch of pineapple and a lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice citrusy flavours, but the aroma was not really my thing.
