Mango IPA Cloudy Flavorbomb!
For those who don’t know, there’s a whole world of hops out there – literally. This time we’re focusing on New Zealand hops in particular, and they are a tasty clan indeed. I could explain this beer further, but Grimm did a perfect job on their website already, so I’ll let them take over below.
Here’s what Grimm Artisanal Ales has to say about this beer:
“Cloudbusting is our series of soft, delicate imperial IPA’s brewed with New Zealand hops. We rotate different NZ hops into each batch. Cloudbusting #4 turned out beautifully; we taste honeydew melon, clementines, honeysuckle, and that telltale “purple tropical” note that we often get from the New Zealand terroir. The beer has a soft mouthfeel, gorgeous yeast-free haze, some hop floaties, and some of the loveliest lacing and foam you’ve seen on a beer in your life. Cloudbusting #4 is brewed with Wai-iti, Waimea, and Motueka.”
Besides the tropical fruity notes, which are – don’t get me wrong – amazing, I think what really makes this beer special is its velvety, cloud-like mouthfeel. Maybe thats where the Cloudbusting name came from? I’m not sure – but either way, it is absolutely worth tracking down for a try. We didn’t mention this in the video, but Cloudbusting #4 also features some sweet ass evil looking art that makes it stand out from the usual white Grimm cans (and caught everyone’s eyes that opened our beer fridge). Very cool.
Until next time, watch the video above and let me know what you think about this beer, or just Grimm in general in the comments below!
