About The Beer
Brewery: Van Dieman Brewing
Style: New England / Hazy IPA (NEIPA)
Format: 500ml Can
Vandemonium is what happens when you want to burst into the summer season, and need to go from zero to hero - rapidly. A tropical NEIPA, double dry hopped with Cryo hops to deliver a massive aroma and flavour injection of juicy mango, melon and grapefruit, and also that trademark haze we have come to enjoy from the beasts of the east.
Its North Eastern yeast roots throw of huge tropical fruit and funky esters, and is loaded with pineapple, mango, and passionfruit aromas that burst from the glass. It features a luscious creamy head, perfect lacing, and beautiful haze thanks to naked oats and raw wheat in the stubborn mash schedule. While none of our beers are ever filtered, the lack of fining in tank makes Vandemonium an opaque monster, adding a nice juicy mouthfeel to the beer, making it stick to the palate more aggressively that’s slightly on the drier side with a crisp almost minerally finish, without detracting form the hop explosion senses experience.
A notable upfront bitterness, followed by a punchy aroma and saturated hop character and an over-the-top dry-hopping abundance of Cryo hop additions, create an aggressive aroma that smells like a drive through a tropical citrus orchard in peak of season, and as it warms notes of fresh orange, yellow grapefruit, and juicy sweet mango trekking to the last sip.
