This is a re-brew of the original collaboration done with Stone Brewing in 2017, once again containing golden kiwifruit, yuzu and habanero chilli. I missed out on the original release, so I’ll get to experience this juiced-up ride (8 per cent ABV) for the first time here. On the nose the yuzu pops off as always out in front, with lychee and mango dominated hops and some soft kiwifruit sweetness further back. The flavour is such a rapid and juicy ride that picking out the individual flavours as they race past is difficult, but the sharpness of the yuzu stays more or less at the forefront, with massively ripe hop fruitiness punctuating the mid palate. At first you might even miss the chilli, but a few sips in, a building warmth will remind you they’re in there. This is a hard one to classify. It’s got the juice of a hazy, but the clarity and bite of a west coast IPA, and that’s even before the fruit comes into the equation. Safe to say though that if you like an IPA with simply ‘more’ then you’ll love this one.
