Mallinson’s Brew Co. – Calypso – 4.0%.
From Mallinson’s Brewing Company comes CALYPSO at 4.0%. Tropical & citrus fruits dominate this Huddersfield brew. This is a pale blonde with a tropical fruit nose, a resinous bitter grapefruit taste, brewed using only Calypso hops. The bitterness is AMAZING and so well balanced. Bordering on IPA bitterness, this blonde is pure beer art, the grapefruit presence is pleasant and dominant with an high dose of carbonic acid to lift the aroma and taste to different levels. I love to see that a blonde ale has been pushed to the brink and comes out like this. Surely a SMASH beer to be worshipped. Stunning!
