The Hoptimist DIPA – ABV 9.1%

Big juicy hop-bomb, originally brewed in collaboration with North Riding.

Look: Dark gold with a thin white head. 

Aroma: Grapefruit, sharpened with lime zest and lots of pine needles.

Taste: Bitter pine resin throughout, with fresh citrus set against a backbone of dark caramel malt.

Verdict: Beautiful marriage of an old school and West Coast DIPA.
