Need to start this review with a thank you! To my beautiful wife who bought me this as a surprise. I'm very grateful because it was so nice. She got it for me along with the Arctic Sky which I rated very highly. She bought it because she liked the look of the can. And I can't argue with that logic because the can is super cool, plus the name is great too, Intimately Spaced Pylons.
This is one of the smoothest IPAs I’ve ever had, it was a beautiful drink from start to finish. It pours to a thick golden colour with a good head. It’s not too fragrant, not too bitter and not too hoppy. It has a real smoothness to it, with a very slight bitterness on the after taste. A tropical fruitiness, but it is quite sweet. I had to whip out a pack of mini cheddars to balance the sweetness. But that only added to the joy of the drink.
I fell in love with this drink early on. Could be because I was sat outside with the football, after little man had fallen asleep. But I felt a sense of normality for once and the whole experience was very enjoyable. At 6% you start to feel this drink kick in early on, but the sweetness does start to overpower a little, so I’m thinking you’d only drink a couple of these. But at that percentage, you’d be well on your way.
It was delicious and I would definitely recommend. I posted it on the UKCBF (facebook craft beer forum) to see what others thought of it and mostly people had good things to say about it, seems to be a crowd pleaser this one. So definitely add one to the basket if you can!
