Thoughts: I know we’re only 5 months into the year, but I’m going to call it, and say this is my favourite beer of the year. It’s really good. I’m a sucker for mosaic hops – they’re my favourite hop, and they feature well in this beer. You get a lot of that on the nose up front, and you can really taste the tropical fruit characteristics that mosaic has, which is what I love. It’s juicy AF, and very refreshing. I get the creaminess of the oats and lactose in the mouthfeel, as well as in the creamy aftertaste. The aftertaste doesn’t linger forever, and doesn’t have that syrupy-ness that some heavily hopped IPAs can have. It’s also super drinkable for 8%. Beer. Of. The. Year.
Rating (out of 5): 🍺🍺🍺🍺 and a half
