6% "Neo-Tropic" IPA
It's been a long few days at work recently. We've had a rather fast turnover of staff and therefore are quite shorthanded resulting in plenty of hours for poor old me. Despite the beer money coming in thick and fast, I've not had chance to get to grips with a new beer - until this evening when I decided to crack one open and enjoy myself.
When I finally fit the last dregs of the can into the glass, I noticed this one was much hazier than it first seemed, a hazy straw yellow.
It's got all those familiar pale stone fruit smells reminiscent of an east coast American IPA - super peachy, apricots and plums. Maybe even a hint of white grape.
Mouthfeel is very full, coating the inside of the mouth quickly indicating a possible addition of oats or wheat for the cloudiness. Flavours are super mellow and refreshing, ranging from the peach and apricot found in the aroma, to tropical fruits and a mild herbaceous note followed up with a minimal bitter aftertaste.
This one was another grab from the work fridge at BrewDog York - give us a shout if you'd like to get one for yourself.
