Swell Brewing Co beers have always been a quality reliable options. Their Golden Ale being one such example. Lately, their ever increasing beer list of limited releases has been impressing. We’ll throw a link to another review at the end of this one but as is the way with the craft beer world these days you will most likely struggle to find it still on bottle shop shelves.

In steps their first NEIPA. a style which will always trigger guideline discussions amongst the craft beer community. Mango, light pineapple, and touches of peach around the fringes from the can as you start to pour. A pithy citrus. On the plate these flavours are joined by a slightly herbaceous edge which is welcome but unexpected. A very minimal bitterness, as very much expected. The mouthfeel is great, those loaded oats are definitely showing here.

This brew is dangerously easy to drink for 7.0% ABV. It appears light, creamy and incredibly moreish. Think those Splits icecreams which your parents bought as as healthier Paddle Pop alternative. I’m not entirely sure that logic completely stacks up though.

Personally I think these limited releases from Swell have been a fantastic evolution of the brewery and this one sits very nicely with the lofty standards set by the previous few releases.

IN SHORT
Swell's first crack at a NEIPA is right on the money.
