Badlands Acronym Abuse NEIPA Chapter Two
Brewery: Badlands Brewery
Style: New England IPA (NEIPA)
Format: 440ml Can
Badlands is using five hops in this "whack you over the head with hops stuffed in a soft fluffy pillow of a beer". Chapter Two unleashes some new hops: Galaxy, Mosaic, Lemondrop, Trident Hop Blend and experimental Aussie Hop, '016'. Upfront tropical aromas of Mango, Mandarin and Passionfruit. A smooth, lush candy mid pallet continues to deliver sultry gasps of Lemon Zest and Lychee, with a mellow, long-lasting bitterness to clean and claim another sip. Badlands take on the style is to a lighter haze and a firmer bitterness than some. Moreish and 'dangerously drinkable'.
