Finally, the day is here: the moment I get to write about beer and I Think You Should Leave. For the uninitiated, the Netflix hit is a masterclass in cringe comedy and one of the most memed mediums of recent times. Explaining the zipline scene from season three would be an affront to comedy genius and timing, so here it is in all its glory. Banks Brewing are also Here For The Zipline with their their IPA a bringing pine and bitterness like a classic West Coast but taking a tropical detour thanks to Idaho 7, Motueka and Southern Cross Hop Kief. Sure, ziplines can't really detour but hot dog cars can and now I get to include a second ITYSL clip, while the beer brings a fruit-forward punch of rockmelon, limes, pawpaw and gooseberry.

But that’s not all from Banks when it comes to enjoying the natural beauty around them. Spring Fling is a hazy IPA where the focus is Citra, Simcoe and Citra Cryo which bring such a tropical fruit aroma that if you went black to Zipline, you'd wonder its hop notes had somehow been turned down. With a lush mnouthfeel that's balanced by a dry finish, it's one that's filed with guava, white grape, sherbety orange and layers of fresh berry.
