Like keeping your Devil's Ivy in direct sunlight or overwatering a Zanziber Gem, Boddriggy have paid little attention to the rules with the release of Indoor Plant Sale, a hazy West Coast IPA. The name might be an oxymoron but the aim is a simple one: combining the soft mouthfeel and tropical flavours found in so many hazies with the dank and piney whack more commonly found in a West Coast.
It combines one of the classic “Three Cs” – Centennial – with the younger American Strata in an opaque and orange beer. There’s a big hit of tropical-meets-pine which moves between gooseberry, passionfruit, grapefruit and pineapple and, while there’s a touch of bitterness towards the end, it plays more of a gentle balancing role than an all-out assault.
