***BEER REVIEW 172***
Beer:: Big House Waltz
Today’s beer needs no introduction; I’ve seen it dozens of times in my IG feed and thought I’d missed the boat on this one. But while having a few beers at our trusty local bottleshop/bar @thirstycamb Rory opens a case of new beers, asks what I think of this one and I had to grab 2!! He only had 12 for the shop so I thought it’s only right to let others have a chance on this and so refrained from buying the whole case. It’s been hailed as an early entry for #BOTY and I’ve gotta agree; it’s a proper juice bomb.
Pours a thick golden yellow. It’s hazy AF. If you ever wanted to see a fine example of hop custard, this is that beer. Huge whippy white froth of a head on this.
Aromas of pineapple, mango and peach. It smells sweet and juicy , with a hint of grapefruit citrus in the background. It does smell bloody lovely. 🍍🍑🥭
In the gob this is tremendous. The smooth, thick hop custard is a joy to pour in my face, sweet tropical stonefruits from the combo of Mosaic and Columbus swell around your mouth with a pithy dry bitterness to follow. The slightest of burn at the back of the throat and I’m ok with that. Soft carbonation fluffs the texture into that gorgeous pillowy softness that we all love from a quality DIPA. This is seriously good stuff. I’ve never been disappointed with North but this is genuinely world class. Top juice indeed!
Sharp design as always by @refold , great branding; their can designs instantly identifiable.
And props to my #CambridgeCraftBeerPartnerInCrime @hoppy_raptor for getting me some proper glassware! Cheers 🍻🍻
