Magic Rock: Damn, Son! Can (Hawkshead Collab) 6.5% [500ml]
They say "A collaboration with Hawkshead Brewery, this fruit adjunct IPA was kettle soured for a bright acidity but also used lactose in the kettle to add body and sweetness. The beer was fermented with a mix of Brett Trois and our house US ale yeast to add a tropical fruity aroma and tart finish. We also used some hibiscus flowers in the hop back to augment the pink colour and add a berry note to the flavour."
We say "This pink drink sits somewhere between IPAs and sours, making it a great thirst quencher in the hot weather. Beginning sweet, the flavours evolve to tart under-ripe plum with yoghurt giving you that lactic kick. There is a mild hoppy bitterness mingling with the funky and twangy flavours. A taste adventure beer, for when you can't decide between having a sour or an IPA."
