    Vibrant Forest -- Altitudes. Azacca/Simcoe IPA

    London murky but two citrus hops and very smooth without any great bitterness.Perfectly acceptable but there are a lot of brews in this space,an easy 6.4% drinker. 7/10

    Vibrant Forest -- Precipice of Light


    IMG_0052.JPG

    Deep London murk but a far more challenging brew,a Chinook IPA. Deep bitterness,grapefruit and thankfully balanced by a selection of malts I enjoyed this 7% animal . 8/10

    A big finish.

    Vibrant Forest -- Darkened Ardour

    Too busy quaffing to photograph the glass,this Imperial Tonka and Coffee Stout had a rich hew and a head almost light purple. The nose was extraordinary ,liquorice dominant followed by rich coffee and some spice .Aged in bourbon barrels this is a very complex drink but the multiple tastes (coffee ,vanilla,coconut )were fantastic and the 10% well hidden.Oh Yes ! 10/10

    Attempt 2 after my previous cock up - simplified.
    Beers tonight....
    1. Wiper and True+Deya planD.jpg
    The Blurb...
    "Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Deya, this beer forms one half of a duo; a two-part study of the interactions between Deya’s house yeast and approach to hopping, combined with our own mixed fermentation techniques.

    This version uses the strain known colloquially as ‘Brett D’, selected by our brewers for its reputation of introducing a fruity cocktail of pineapple and red apple aromas. Over time as the beer ages (if you manage to save it), expect to see additional complexity emerge, introducing an assertive kick of that characteristic Brettanomyces funk."
    Definitely Fruit Cocktail with apple peel and a nice lingering bitterness. 7.5/10.

    2. Siren-Elusive Zombies Ate My Neigbours.jpg
    What they say.....
    "A special collaboration with our neighbours and friends at Elusive Brewing. As Andy has been campaigning so successfully for #BIPACOMEBACK, it was an easy decision to work on a Black IPA together. A carefully considered selection of malts balances perfectly with complementary hops, leaving this beer buzzing in vibrant orange, pine and berry aromas."
    And they're right , a fantastic , oddly alluring beer. 8/10

    3. Burnt Mill Higher Grounds.jpg, a coffee porter, here's the spiel...
    "This classic, rich porter has a complex base of Dark, Rye and Aromatic malts which have been treated to a cold steep coffee addition with beans sourced from our pals at Hasbean, creating sumptuous and intense flavours of coffee, fruit and berries supported by the smooth, dark, roasty body."
    All I'm getting is the roasty body, none of the other stuff, possibly over chilled when I started but after allowing to warm a bit there's little change. 5.5/10.

    Interesting session.

    Some of the worst beers I can remember have been porters or stouts with actual coffee in them. I like coffee and I like beer, but I think I'd rather have pineapple juice than coffee in my beer.

    10% ABV but at £5.30 for a 440ml can I'd have to think about it.

    Thought about it. Nope, not for me and Turning Point are one of my favourite breweries.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
