Bright lights, feel alright. I'm gonna see her again tonight.
New in store from Australia's top rated craft brewery, Pirate Life Brewing, IIPA is a big, old school West Coast style double IPA that bucks the recent trend of murky fruit bombs. On opening you're greeted with a boozy, light caramel and citrus blast. Clear and golden to pour it has a lovely, full, chewy body and smooth mouthfeel. To taste it's medium sweet with flavours of grapefruit pith and pine and has a mild bitterness to finish. Surprisingly it hides it's strength well and whilst you feel the warmth of the alcohol as it slips down it doesn't burn or overpower.
Is This How You Feel? put the Preatures on the Australian indie pop map and I think it's safe to say that IIPA will follow suit for Pirate Life Brewing here in the UK.
