Heathen is a New England IPA (NEIPA) brewed by Northern Monk, a brewery in Leeds, England. It is one of their flagship beers and is known for its juicy, hazy appearance and tropical fruit flavours. The beer is brewed with a blend of American hops, including Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus. Citra and Mosaic are known for their tropical fruit flavours, while Columbus adds a touch of bitterness and piney notes.

Heathen packs a phenomenal punch, with an ABV of 7.2% and an IBU of 30. It is a full-flavoured beer with a smooth, creamy texture. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruits, such as mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. The flavour is also fruity, with notes of citrus, passionfruit, and guava. There is a slight bitterness on the finish, but it is balanced by the sweetness of the malts. Heathen is a highly sought-after beer and is often sold out quickly. It is a popular choice for both casual and craft beer drinkers, although treat it with respect.
