Bring on the fruit; bring on the juice.
Batch NEIPA Juicy Boys has been described by one Untappd user as “fruity as all hell,” and they’re not wrong. In the aroma, a wallop of tropical fruit salad joins with the richness of dark brown sugar, but the molasses character recedes once you start drinking, leaving only juice - fresh and hazy and pulpy breakfast juice with extra mango.
To take the tropical feel even further, Batch have also released Island Style, a laid back coconut IPA that transports you to a hammock swinging between two palm trees. Rather than the dried coconut harshness that some coconut beers can pick up, Island Style contains more of a coconut cream vibe, no doubt thanks to the addition of lactose for sweetness and body. The Mosaic and HPA-016 hops inject vibrant fruit notes, making this a tropical cocktail that’s almost mocking when you drink it in winter.
