Who - Arbor Ales
Where - Easton, Bristol
What - Arbor throw us a curveball with the Yakima Valley. They're all about creative brewing and making beer that they (and we) really want to drink. This American IPA feels a little different than their house brews; it's chewy and full of caramel.
The mix of Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook, Citra and Summit hops gives a really complex take on the soft APA feel. Best drank warmer than you might normally think, it stands out as a richer take on Arbor's usual juicy vibes.
The malts come across really well, so there's almost a hint of banana sweets on the nose. It's got a decent strength on it, too!
Premium-strength, chewy, unique. ABV 7%. Vegan. 568ml can.
