Swell continue to ride the rolling wave, pumping out limited releases in rapid succession. Here, after dipping their toes into the world of haze with their NE XPA and Tropical Hazy IPA, they've delivered their first NEIPA, with rolled oats and wheat added for haze and body and Vic Secret, Mosaic and Simcoe the hops of choice.

It's lightly hazy rather than heavy in the glass, with burnt orange glow and the aromas ready to lure the drinker in with a medley of sweet stone – namely apricot, peach and some lychee. The sweetness allows those juicy apricots to really shine while the malt base, which also includes some Vienna malt, creates flavours reminiscent of the syrup in a tin of peach slices.

The restrained bitterness and juicy hops typical of the NEIPA style leave you with a fine example of a modern IPA, one that disappears rather faster from your glass than a 7 percent ABV maybe should...
