Hot Trub Time Machine Part 2 – Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks (Superflux Beer Company)


From Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks in Richmond in collaboration with Superflux Beer Company (formerly Machine Ales) comes their “Hot Trub Time Machine IPA Part 2″.  The beer pours a cloudy yellow with a white head.  The aroma consists of mild tropical, pine, resin, citrus rind, wheat with a floral finish.  The flavour is of with hints of pineapple and citrus.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.9% with an IBU of 61.  This currently tastes like a massive West Coast IPA with the look of an North East IPA.  This was bottled and consumed on Jan 24th, 2018.  The original version of this from 2016 was far more fruity but I have a feeling as this one ages for a week or two the fruit notes will pick up.  Its a really nice West Coast IPA none the less.
