boneface unf*ck the world

This unrepentantly nostalgic release from Boneface is an ode to the IPAs of old (well maybe just a few years ago), when the beer was big (8 per cent ABV), bold and toweringly bitter.  Cryo Citra and El Dorado hops unleash on the nose, with pine resin, eucalyptus and fresh citrus rind.  More sharp citrus, tinned pineapple and mango rise up through the rich clean malt, lingering on into the long and distinctly oily finish.  Get into this one fresh and get into it chilled to keep those massively unctuous hops crisp and on point.
