COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
North East Scotland meets North East USA in our BrewDog Vs Cloudwater showdown.

This New England IPA is low in bitterness but loaded with explosive fruit flavour. Redolent with tropical fruit notes, fresh squeezed orange juice, pineapple, fragrant cut grass, and hints of pine dust, the aroma is complex and alluring. On the palate, the bittersweet balance emphasises the sweet, juicy fruit character, while the addition of oats adds a silken mouthfeel, giving the beer a full and rounded finish. If it wasn’t for the subtle bitter edge and the slight hint of alcohol warmth, you’d swear you were drinking juice.

Bottle from Wine Rack at Yarnton Nurseries, Yarnton, Oxon, consumed at home Thursday 23rd March 2017 Pours yolky yellow colour but more battery than free range, a large billowing white head sits atop. This tastes like a sessionable version of the Cloudwater DIPA series, nice mouthfeel, silky smooth, juicy hops, loads of hoppy burps. It’s good, really good. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8
