London Beer Factory’s ‘Jungle Trip’ is another beer from my supermarket backlog that I have taken far to long to getting around and drinking/reviewing! You can tell I have had this a while as since then the brewery have re-branded with new artwork and logo (although interestingly on their website ‘Jungle Trip’ has maintained the original look). This beer is a New England Pale Ale at 5.3% ABV and brewed with 4 different hops.
Visually, the beer pours a very appetising hazy, sunshine yellow pour. The aroma of the beer is very citrusy with lots of grapefruit peel coming through. There are also hints of white grape too! The flavour is quite refreshing although there is a sharp bitterness that I wasn’t expecting from a NEPA. Much like the nose the flavour is very citrus based.
A quick note on the can art: I always loved the marble, paint like design of London Beer Factory cans so I will miss them slightly as a result of the re-brand.
On the whole a solid, drinkable New England Pale. It’s got a good hop to it with slight grassy and piney notes which I was excepting quite so much. I think the fruitier flavours could have hit through a little stronger, considering the style, but considering the hops that have been used and can see why. A summer sinker nevertheless!
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
