Other Notes: The Marvellous Magical Broom. Hazy DIPA. Flavor Profile – Tropical fruits, citrus, dank. In collaboration with Pink Boots Society
Brewer Description: (from can) After her journey with Kiki and Jiji, Lili went on to become an all-round magical broom. From basic broom skills like sweeping, flying, soup-stirring to rare ones like broom-fencing against self-righteous snobs, she somehow manages to always handle with flair.
In a Pink Boots Society fundraiser, Lili stirred-up a glass of her signature PBS Hop Blend soup for Albert. It was so good that he immediately begged for an apprenticeship. Lili said yes, in the condition that he will do all the housework and always keep the toilet seat down.
This Hazy DIPA is Albert’s graduation project – to master the PBS Hop Blend 2020. Loaded with tropical fruits, citrus and dank hop aroma. Drinks with a smooth mouthfeel and finishes with a sweet impression.

Intro: A 330ml can, canned on 8th April 2020, poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A slightly murky hazy dark orange colour with a two finger white head that had great retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Lightly dank, tropical stone fruit, mango, mango peel, citrusy, orange rind.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, lightly dank, mango, citrus rind, orange zest and maybe a slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I would have preferred less sweetness, but good aromas, well hidden abv, and still enjoyable.
