You might think this draught-only release is Holgate coming late to the hazy game, but you'd be wrong. Turns out it's a case of the brewers revisiting their 2017 GABS beer, then tagged a New England IPA going by the name Cloudy With A Chance Of Mangoes. Not that there's any mangoes in it.
Instead, they've used wheat and oats to build and soften the mouthfeel and opted for "huge" additions of US hop varieties Azacca, Amarillo and Mosaic to conjure the fruity side. They tell us the result is a beer with "big, fruity hop character – think mango nectar, orange, peach – along with the style's hallmark hop haze" and, of course, little in teh way of bitterness.
