Wow. I don't know where to start with this one.
Neon Overlord by Brewdog is a 7.3% ABV chilli & mango IPA. Released today, I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of cans on my way home from work at Westhill Service Station.
Opening the can you are lured in by the sweet fruity aromas of pineapple & mango. However, upon tasting - you are smacked in the mouth with a massive dollop of spicy chilli. This may not sound like everyone's idea of a good beer, but I really enjoyed it. The sweetness you get from the fruit is just enough to compliment the chilli.
Not only is the beer awesome - the can design is up there with the best efforts from Beavertown, if not better. It is seriously cool.
I wouldn't suggest that Neon Overlord be your entry to chilli beer - the chilli is very strong, and quite spicy. If you are a fan of chilli beer or just looking to try something different - then I highly suggest giving it a go 🍻
