The new Fropical Ferret by Badger Beers
It’s always lovely to taste a new product from one of Dorset’s much loved brands. In this case it was the newly launched Fropical Ferret IPA by Badger Beers.
The Fropical Ferret is a tropical twist on one of their fan-favourite amber ales – the Fursty Ferret… and tropical it is! The Fropical Ferret is a lovely combination of biscuit-y/toffee notes from the Crystal and Munich malts (which also help to give the ale its auburn colour), plus the smooth fruitiness of the passionfruit and mango flavours from the Centennial and Amarillo hops sourced from the Pacific West Coast of the USA.
Badger explained the story behind their new beer – “After a year of working hard, our brewers thought it was high time for something different, so they took hops from the sun-drenched shores of the Pacific West Coast of the USA and created a beer that was as fruity as a ferret on surfboard (and refreshing as a dip in Cali).”
You can buy Fropical Ferret direct from the Badger website.
