On tap at Farrington's, Dublin.
Steady carpet of off white that rings over bright gold body.
Mango, canteloupe, resin and orange sherbet on the nose - bright and fresh.
Some baguette and more mango, then lemon peel, herb, evergreen and a hint of tangerine for hops.
Limoncello finish and stinging nettle linger.
Crisp, medium leaning light, some chew but lean.
Spanking fresh - keg tapped the same morning.
All sorts of citrus (though interestingly, not grapefruit) and a bit of aspirin in the linger. Too thin (less sticky and malty than PH Hop Head) and borderline ABV to call this a true DIPA. But a hop monster just the same.
Probably Ireland's first real IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
