Badlands first solo foray into the NEIPA style. Badlands is using five hops in this “whack you over the head with hops stuffed in a soft fluffy pillow of a beer” : Galaxy, Mosaic, Callista, Sultana and experimental NZ hop, HORT4337. Upfront tropical aromas of Lemon Zest, Lychee, Mandarin and Passionfruit. Smooth, lush candy mid pallet with a mellow 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 at 6.5%abv.
