Ocean Reach Counting Clouds & Future Age

Style
Oat Cream IPA & Imperial Stout
ABV
6.4% & 8.2%

Ocean Reach Brewing are dreaming up a brighter future with another two big tins filled with limited releases. Counting Clouds is an oat cream IPA that’s stacked with swirling tropical fruit flavours of mango, guava and pineapple while there's also orange juice with a heavy hit of rind as though another citrus has been thrown in (ruby grapefruit being the most likely culprit). Meanwhile, the lactose and the malt bill make these clouds as dense and fluffy as they come.

Future Age is almost as viscous as that oat cream but that’s about where any similarities end. The imperial stout was brewed to help us see into another dimension like we’re in a Christopher Nolan movie (I mean Interstellar, no Oppenheimer spoilers please). That dimension is a balanced one where equal parts roasted coffee, toast and dark chocolate all come together for a wonderfully melded and rich future that’s soon met by a bitter end.
