Brewer Description: (from website) A collaboration with Yakima Chief Hops trialling experimental Cryo Hops® TRI2304. A huge aroma of citrus peel, peach and mango on the nose with a full mouthfeel. Taste juicy fruit, mango, and guava with mild grapefruit and lime zing, this DDH IPA is low in bitterness but high in flavour and balance.
