Sauce Brewing Pornstar Cocktail IPA

Style
Hazy IPA
ABV
6.5% ABV

How is that for a name? Taste.com.au tells us a pornstar martini (or passion star as they call it in their conservative publication) contains passionfruit, lime and vanilla. I’ve had the cocktail before on special occasions (eg new job, Christmas) but I haven’t had them in an IPA.

Enter Sauce Brewing Co shouting: "Hold my Pornstar Cocktail IPA".

Colour wise, it's a dead ringer for the cocktail itself, looking more like a dark passionfruit purée than a juice. It's a treat to sniff too, with passionfruit mingling with piney hops beneath a sharp slice of vanilla.

The passionfruit provides some chewy sweetness, accented with a hint of lime. Throughout it all, the vanilla flavour gets the first and last laugh with the 6.5 percent ABV conjuring up memories of the vanilla vodka often employed in the titular cocktail. There’s a hoppy backbone that might please the IPA purist, but when you’re drinking something titled Pornstar Cocktail IPA you might want to adjust your standards accordingly.
