Beer with the oddest name for a while – Epic Lupulingus.
Buying this today put me in a quandary as there seems to be a raft of new beers available ‘on tap’ that are tempting, but I made a choice and so here we are.
“Lupulin = resinous compound from hops. Lingus = reference to tongue“
An intergalactic tangerine colour. The hop intensity is so great you continue to get the flavours developing in your mouth long after you have swallowed. It is full-on ripe summer stonefruit – like baked caramalized peaches, drizzled with apricot syrup – the hop resin character is fresh and piney but leaves an oily and gum numbing finish as your tongue is pounded by the chronic bitterness that feels like it will last forever.
This should go ok with the curry that has been waiting to be eaten and is wafting around the house.
