Northern Monk – Mango Lassi Heathen IPA – 7.2%
From the Northern Monk Brew Co comes Mango Lassi Heathen IPA at 7.2%. Pushing the borderless boundaries of beer! De canning gives a monstrous citrus mango aroma, literally like pure juice. The pour is deep orange with good carbonation and little head or retention. This is a pure juice bomb of epic proportions. The hop aroma gets lost slightly in all the fruit juice and overall ends up a very confused style of beer. Some kind of an odd fruit cocktail. The aim of pushing the IPA to fruit juice proportions has just gone too far. Just about pleasant, yet a bit acidic and fruity for my liking. An experience…..
