Looks like a white wine; smells like a tropical pale ale; tastes like a flavoursome lager. The folk at Black Hops have merged the widespread love of tropical hops and the clean sessionability of a well made lager.
It’s super clear, looking similar to clarified apple juice or a crisp white wine. The big, fruity aroma will have you thinking you’ve picked up a hoppy pale ale, but the first sip reveals a clean lager with a smooth body. It’s clean without short-changing you on the flavour: subtle pineapple and pear notes give way to a little orange peel as you get further in, all underlaid with the gentle flavours of the pilsner malt. They’ve bolstered the body with some rolled oats, while retaining an easy-drinking crispness in the finish.
Drink it fresh. Enjoy the hops. Feel the refreshment. Repeat.
