Verdant Even Sharks Need Water

Brewery: Verdant Brewing Co.
Country: England
ABV: 6.5%
Style: New England / Hazy IPA
Other Notes: Malts – Extra Pale, Wheat, Caramalt, Flaked Barley and Oats. Hops – Citra, Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin

Brewer Description: (from can) Murky, thick, juicy and chewy. It’s like a packet of sherbet sweets drenched in tangy fruit layers cuddled by a comforting bready hug. Soft to drink with a slight creamy texture and medium dry finish. It’s tough to stop drinking it.

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 12th November 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: An extremely hazy light yellow colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving behind some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, ripe mango, pineapple, peach with light grass and citrus rind.
Taste: Lots of moderately sweet melon (melon ice cream) and mango with a moderate bitter citrus rind and peel finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and easy to drink. Strong melon ice cream flavour sweetness was balanced with the moderately bitter finish.

Verdant Pulp!

Brewery: Verdant Brewing Co.
Country: England
ABV: 8%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Malts – Extra Pale Ale, Best Ale, Caragold, Wheat and Dextrose. Hops – Citra, Galaxy, Ekuanot and Columbus

Brewer Description: (from can) This Double IPA is bigger in every way but still retains a dry finish that hides its strength. Massive fruit aromas and flavours combined with hazy golden looks and chewy body really do make this beer a stone fruit pulp fest!

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 1st November 2018, and poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy hazy orange colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, mango, peach with light citrus rind and orange peel.
Taste: Mango, apricot, melon, orange peel and zest, grass, dank with a touch of booze on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Great aroma, and I think taste started off well enough, but the finish which was a bit grassy with a touch of booze just seemed to lose all the nice fruitiness that was there at the beginning.
