‘Stone the Crows’, the phrase used by cult vlogger Simon Martin to describe a ripper beer on his YouTube channel @realalecraftbeer . In a Scandinavian collab brew between @brewski.se 🇸🇪 and @alefarmbrewing 🇩🇰 the phrase is borrowed as a tribute to Simon and all the bloggers out there. They say they read each and every review with interest, so here goes with my thoughts on this tasty IPA.
Bottle. Pours a hazy pineapple gold, with frothy white head that eventually dissipates, but laces well. Tropical fruit aromas – passionfruit, mango, pineapple -and toffee malts. Upfront pine bitterness, followed by orange and gentle floral notes, grass and an ever so slight touch of balancing toffee malt. Remains clean and doesn’t become cloying or overly bitter, begging another sip.
