Things are pretty dire for the next couple of weeks. Back on monthly pay, I can't particularly afford to fulfill my alphabet commitment this week, so I decided to write about a beer I meant to write about back in November.
Clear golden pour with a perfect head. Everything about the hops in this beer scream tropical - mango, grapefruit, melon, lemon and some orange are all present in the aroma and taste. Also rearing its head is that over-ripe fruitiness akin to Thornbridge Kipling, alongside a smooth, full mouthfeel leaving a lingering creamy aftertaste. Mouth watering.
Whether it was indeed brewed at Thwaites or under license somewhere else, it was a big hit with staff and customers alike. Either way, I sincerely hope they bring it out again at some point as I would certainly like to return to this beer.
