Microbrewing has come a long way from the odd few barrels in hipster basements. UK Microbreweries have led to an explosion of popularity for unconventional beer styles such as the stout or the Pale Ale. Atom, a Hull-based Brewery, claims to have brewing down to a science.

Parallax Full Bodied IPA Review
Parallax Full Bodied IPA is just one of the beers brewed by Atom now available at Backyard Beers. We offer Parallax at a price of £4.40 per 6.2% ABV 440ml can.
The Parallax can has a sleek and straightforward design that captures the scientific vibe the brewery goes for. Dark purple accents and white texts contrast warm pink. The design is easy to read, appealing and doesn’t offer a rough texture in the hand.
Parallax is the scientific name given to the difference in the direction of a celestial object as perceived from two different points. On the one hand, the higher percentage of this beer could lead one to imagine quite a strong taste by IPA standards. But, on the other hand, the mixture of Sabro and El Dorado hops, two hops with distinctly fruity aromas, would lead to a tropical hypothesis.
However, the proper celestial heights this beer reaches are only captured when combining the data from both angles. Parallax offers a beautiful tropical flavour, with just enough bitterness to ground it. Parallax is definitely a beer I can see myself enjoying on a chilled out night. There’s just enough depth in the flavour to keep each sip feeling fresh, with just enough strength to make each also rewarding.
Parallax has made a strong impression upon the first sip scientifically proved itself as a perfect IPA in my eyes. Easy to drink with a lot of complexity hidden in its tropical aromas, this is definitely a beer I’d recommend to craft beer drinkers, new and old.
