Bottle Art: Nothing fancy this one, a pretty standard 355ml can. To tell what hops are in it you have to look at a small sound label stuck on the can.
Sight: A light golden colour, with a slight murk. Beer forms a pure white cap that hangs around and leaves beautiful lacing as it is drunk.
Aroma: A tropical treat of Orange and Mangos. Also it has a sweetness of some sort of sherbert. The aroma is super tasty.
Taste: Citrus is the dominant flavour profile, lemon, oranges and mango shine through. There is even hints of passionfruit in there. The bitterness hangs on but is in no way overpowering, adding a mouth watering quality to the beer.
Would I buy it again? Yes. This beer could easily be in their main line up, this hop profile line up is great. But I would buy any of this series just to experience the hop profile. So far in this series they have done a lot of single hop cans. So I need to be on the lookout for these.
Have you tried any of these? What are your opinions on these beers? Do you like being exposed to hops in this manner? Let me know below. Thanks for always reading cheers!
