From those Welsh rascals Tiny Rebel, it’s day-glo colours just scream tropical IPA.
The colour code carries on as it pours into the glass, with an almost orange hazy hue to it and a head that laces up quicky but dies back just as fast.
The nose is all mango and pineapple and hints of hops, while the first taste delivers a massive juicy, fruity hit.
My first thought was “I recognise that taste … oh yeah. Fruit Salad sweeties.”
It’s a flavour that lasts the whole beer through, even when the bitter hop hip settles in at the back of your mouth.
Clwb Tropicana is a very drinkable brew, for all it checks in at 5.5%. And, before you ask, no it’s not free. But it is worth the money.
