Today’s review is from my cracking local brewery Pretty Decent Beer Co based out of Forest Gate. ‘The Even Greater Love Story’ is a Double IPA version of the their core range beer ‘Greatest Love Story’, a beer I regularly stock in my own pub . It is single hopped with one of the most popular hops going, Simcoe, and comes in at 8% ABV.
The beer pours a dark straw or more yellow-ochre colour to it with a snow white head. The nose is loaded with a heavy passion fruit aroma. Big and bold on the flavours with that passion fruit coming back and punches of guava and pineapple as well. It’s fairly smooth drinking through, without much bitterness, however you certainly get a boozy kick to the finish.
A quick note on the can art: A flirty little chat with ‘Simcoe’ over text is something I find quite funny really! The can designs are getting increasingly creative from Pretty Decent’s resident artist.
Overall, it’s another very good beer from my local brewery. Punchy in both the booze and flavour department. What I found interesting about the beer is it did have an interesting grassy/earthy quality to it which added an extra positive dynamic. Easy drinking and another DIPA hit from Pretty Decent.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
