Why Beaming? Because, according to the man behind the beer, this is an IPA designed to be drunk from an esky in the sunshine in a park or at the beach. Smaller, paler and leaner than the Shoulders Of Giants IPA released at the same time, it features local hop Ella alongside a quintet of popular (and, for the most part, fruity and citrusy) American varieties.
It reminds me of IPAs of the Thornbridge Jaipur / 3 Ravens New World IPA ilk: light and lean, with plenty of bitey, pithy, and champagne like drying bitterness underpinning the sweetened grapefruit and sharper lemon citrus aromas, plus flavours that touch upon mandarin and pineapple. A park / beach quaffer for those looking for more punch than an XPA or summer ale.
