It’s far too long since I’ve reviewed a beer from my local brewery Pretty Decent! It’s not for lack of buying but more a case of still having way too many beers to get through. It’s also my first review since the can rebrand, which has allowed their artist to really go wild with the can wraps. ‘I Can’t Dance Like That’ is a 6% New England IPA, so on the stronger end, ABV wise, for Pretty Decent. It features a completely new hop to me, Nectaron. According to the fine folks at Pretty Decent it’s sold out everywhere and they managed to get some of the last of it to whack into this brew!
As is the trade mark now with Pretty Decent, the beer pours super hazy with a gold colour and dense white head! The nose of the beer is rather light but with pleasant tropical undertones. The body is super soft and packed with loads of peach and stone fruit flavour but I think it could be even punchier! The finish has a really nice hoppy bitterness to it and overall, for a 6% brew, it is light and easy drinking.
A quick note on the can art: I’ve been really enjoying all the artwork coming out from Nanna the artist recently. Bold dance moves for a bold beer.
It’s lovely to be getting back to reviewing local beers and even better when the beer itself is great. The Nectaron hop is clearly the guilty party in bringing those cracking peach flavours to the brew. However, I’ve also had this on draft, and wow is it a flavour bomb in that format. Goes to show that drinking a proper pint is still the best way to go. Overall, the beer is very drinkable, and with the way the weather has been recently, slips down perfectly. I’ve ended up missing a few releases from Pretty Decent, but I must make sure to stay up to date if the beers keep coming out this nice.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
