Jolly Pumpkin/Gigantic Phuket
A brand new collaboration from one of my favorite breweries in the world, Jolly Pumpkin, arrives tomorrow. A collabo with Oregon's Gigantic brewing, Phuket is a hoppy, lime saison. Aromas of lime, unripe pear, and the classic pineapple tinted notes of Jolly Pumpkin funk, erupt from your glass. Phuket; It's Not That Far From Laos is light, lively, and quite dry due to the inclusion of Jasmine Rice and Palm Sugar in the mash. The use of Cascade, Chinook, and Jarrylo hops, as well as Lime Peel, meld together flavors of citrus, pine, and white grape that linger quietly before finishing slightly bitter with mild tartness.
