Today’s beer is from the dwindling remains of my Tiny Rebel beers. I’ve still got a few to go but I’m on the look out now for a new bulk buy to supplement my supermarket pick-ups. So if anyone has any recommendations from their favourite craft breweries drop a comment below! Anyway, this is ‘Dutty’ (but hopefully in the good way) a Vermont session IPA. I’m fairly certain, if my geography degree has done me any good, that this should be a New England IPA but named slightly differently. Which is good, because it’s a style that I’m really becoming fond of.
Visually, the beer looks almost identical to a glass of freshly pressed apple juice. Super hazy. A punchy tropical aroma very reminiscent of pineapple juice for me. A very crisp and juicy beer. Moreish bitterness on the finish with out being unbalanced making for a genuinely refreshing beer. Despite it being quite flat, the lack of carbonation doesn’t detract at all from this surprisingly. The flatness works very well with the juicier flavours of the beer.
A quick note on the can art: A funky graffiti style can design. Hard to tell from the angle of my photo but there are faint graffiti art works in the background including a lion. A colour you don’t see often for cans so would definitely stand out on the shelves.
A shorter review today for what is a simple but effective beer. Lovely and crisp, a proper ‘summer in the garden’ kind of drink. It’s a very sessionable beer at 4.2% for sure, would love a pint of this. Nothing crazy going on that might put someone off. Certainly a beer I would recommend to someone getting into craft or who have never had a Tiny Rebel.
Thanks for taking the time to read! Cheers!
