The tenth iteration of Little Bang’s Undercover Fashion Police – titled Haze of Thunder – takes inspiration from both the movie Days of Thunder and the craziness of the current pandemic. Such unprecedented times called for a reworking of the recipe, which saw the brewers dropping the hammer and doubling up on the hops, the booze and the fun. Clocking in at a high octane 9.1 percent ABV, Haze of Thunder utilises Mosaic, Galaxy and Citra in large quantities to create a storm of resin and tropical fruits.
Slightly hazy with a golden hue, there's a smidgeon of biscuity malts riding on the slipstream of those hop aromas, although it's the juicy tropical fruits of papaya and mango that shine on the palate alongside the resin. There is a definite sweetness hanging around too, with a gentle bitterness there to guide you down the home straight.
