When something's good, it's worth having again. DEYA are are so confident that this IPA is something good, they've made 13 of them.
Something Good is a juicy IPA that DEYA have made 12 versions of before, with this 13th being the first of 2021. For this version DEYA have used two new hop varieties that they haven't brewed with before, covertly called HBC 586 and HBC 630.
Not many series make it to 13, so the Something Good series must be as good as it sounds in order to make it this far. Who knows where the series will end?
Something Good 13: Taste Test
The smell is real juicy, with a fruity sweetness coming from the can pop along with a slight hoppyness. The pour is a thick texture with a real haziness to the colour that makes it opaque.
The texture is creamy with the carbonation helping to bring some of the fruitiness to the fore. The initial flavour is bitter but quickly turning into a fruitiness, reminiscent of stone fruit.
The finish is sweet, much sweeter than I anticipated from an IPA and although there is a little bitterness, it's a very fruity finish.
Something Good 13: Can Notes
The crocodile fella is much more casual in this instance, holding a pint of beer while leaning with one foot on the 'G' of 'Good'. The whole impression the can gives is that it's been doodled in the back of an art student's notebook, with lots of different text, patterns and shading that would definitely result from hours of boring classes.
It's striking, eye-catching and very colourful, all of which make it stand out on the shelf quite nicely, even though it's not entirely clear what the name of the beer is until you look closely. That's the point of a beer can though, right?
