Cloudwater A•W18 Brewed All Season DIPA

Brewery: Cloudwater Brew Co.
Country: England
ABV: 8.5%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Autumn-Winter 18. Aroma & Flavour – Ripe mango supported by peach and passion fruit, with a light, sweet malt profile. Body – Full-bodied, smooth and juicy. Aftertaste – Soft peach and mango sweetness, very low bitterness

Brewer Description: (from can) Double IPA is a style close to our hearts and one we’ve worked hard to continually refine. This beer is the result of two years’ experience in developing recipes that are deliciously drinkable at a higher ABV, delivering clean and precise flavours. Thick body and sweetness provide the platform to showcase juicy mango, peach and passion fruit.

Appearance: A hazy mango juice orange colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention, while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Super ripe mango juice with hints of peach and citrus zest.
Taste: Bittersweet, grapefruit zest, orange peel, orange, mango, peach and a light spicy peppery finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Great aroma full of juice while taste was more bitter citrus than juice. In the end the juice and bitterness were balanced, but my favourite haze’s are all juice.

Gweilo x Magic Rock Solitaire NEIIPA

Brewery: Gweilo Brewery x Magic Rock Brewing
Country: Hong Kong
ABV: 8.5%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: 35 IBUs. Collaboration

Brewer Description: (from can) Brewed with our friends at Magic Rock, Solitaire is a seriously juicy Double NEIPA. No expense has been spared on this bad boy with a huge dry hop of Galaxy, Aloha, Citra Cryo, El Dorado and Denali. These are carried by the base of pale malt, wheat and oats to create a super rich, tropical hop bomb. Gently roll the can before opening and drink it fresh to ensure maximum juiciness.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 30th November 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy darkish orange colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving behind some lacing.
Aroma: Strong tropical aromas. Mango, peach, and citrus zestiness.
Taste: Tropical stone fruit, ripe mango, peach, citrus zest and rind, nice light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Very nice tropical juiciness with good light bitterness to balance and good body. It’s got pretty much everything I asked for when I reviewed the Nebulous DDH NEIPA. Carbonation was perhaps slightly too high, but not to take anything away from it, this was good and very enjoyable to drink.

Cloudwater …And Getting Caught In The Rain

Brewery: Cloudwater Brew Co.
Country: England
ABV: 9%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Collaboration with Muted Horn. Aroma & Flavour – Sweet, juicy pineapple dominates, followed by smooth and creamy coconut. Body – Thick, yet silky and soft. Aftertaste – Coconut is prominent in a lingering sweet finish. Dry hop intensity – 20 g/L

Brewer Description: (from can) This fun twist on a Double IPA, brewed with Berlin’s Muted Horn, is infused with pineapple and coconut, and made for times when you fancy something a bit different. But although you may enjoy a bout of escapism, don’t forget the classic styles when choosing a long-term partner. They’re probably more exciting than you thought!

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 8th October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice hazy mango orange colour with a just over one finger white head that dissipated very quickly to nothing and left pretty much no lacing.
Aroma: Pina colada. Toasted coconut and pineapple.
Taste: Juicy, moderate sweetness, toasted creamy coconut, pineapple, pina colada, with hints of mango. There is also some bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: I think it does everything the can says it does, with a really nice aroma, but it was perhaps a bit too sweet for me. It’s also a bit debatable as to whether it’s a DIPA as it just seems more like a Fruit Beer.
