"Jetlag is undergoing an evolution that will see it modernise and develop into a DDH IPA series. Each brew is double dry hopped with a different exciting hop combination to maximise aromas and flavour extraction then loaded up with oats for a smooth, juicy mouthfeel and hazy appearance."

Drinkability: 8/10

Overall Impression: 9/10


Pretty much what you'd expect from a double dry hopped IPA. Loads of mixed fruit flavours - lots of citrus and stone fruit flavours. Predominantly mango, pineapple, and passionfruit. There's also a more than subtle bitterness hiding behind it that lingers a little after each sip. It works though, and combined with a fair whack of carbonation it all blends pretty well. Hop combination is solid and the hazy straw coloured hue is the standard for most new world IPA's these days. The inclusion of oats helps with the silky smooth mouth feel and plenty of alcohol content to hold it all together.
