Brewer Description: (from can) Fresh IPA, a rolling, ever-changing monthly series of one-offs, brewed in small batches and available only from our brewery outlets, and only while stocks last. Each batch is an opportunity to try a new, brewery fresh IPA – unfiltered and unfined, showcasing a unique combination of yeast, malt and hops. Just fun, fresh hoppy beer at its best.

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 4th May 2020 (maybe… it’s not too legible). Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.

Aroma: Strong citrus pith, orange and lemon zest, with notes of pine and grass.
Taste: Juicy, papaya, melon, mango, citrus zest and pith, lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: Easy drinking IPA with enjoyable aroma and flavours.
