September 11, 2019
’Heathen’ is part of Leeds-based brewery Northern Monk’s core selection, comforting brethren in the tens of thousands. Almost an Imperial IPA, the ABV is pushed way back allowing Citra hops aplenty to dominate the aroma and taste.
Pours murky yellow with a creamy, long-lasting, lacing head. Aroma is tropical fruits, including mango, pineapple, grapefruit and citric fruits.
Taste is tropical notes of mango, pineapple, citrus and grapefruit. Medium to full body and soft carbonation.
Northern Monk’s ‘Mango Lassi Heathen’ is a reformed project of ‘Heathen’, having more fruitiness and sweetness by adding extra mango and lactose.
Pours murky orange with no head. Aroma is fresh tropical fruits, especially mango, and citrus.
Taste is floral, juicy, tropical fruits, mango, sweet malts and with a mild bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation.
Repent or burn!
