“Refreshers” by Hodges Home Brew

Refreshers is available in 0, 3, 6, 12 and 18mg nicotine. You can choose from two VG/PG ratios. 50/50 or 70/30. Today I am using 3mg with a 70/30 ratio.

Hodges Home Brew’s description of this juice is – “This is the original lemon flavour sweet with the sherbet centre that was a very popular choice back when I was a child, but trust us here at Hodges there is nothing old fashioned about this juice, and the dentist won’t be needed if you have to much, so enjoy this juice as part of your all day vape or as an occasional treat, your decision! One thing we know about this juice people who use it come back time and time again.”

I am a huge fan of Hodges Home Brew. The only flavour out of their massive range that I don’t like is coffee heaven but me and coffee e-liquids just don’t get on. I’m hoping this juice will match the expectations that their previous juices have built up.

My set-up is as follows:

  • Dotmod Petri (double airflow cloud cap)
  • Dual quad twisted 26g kanthal – 5 wraps – Coming out at 0.13Ω
  • Wicked with Rayon
  • Snow wolf 200w – Set to 149w

This juice comes in a 30ml square glass dropper bottle. It is also available in 100ml plastic bottles. The square bottles really help this brand to stand out. The labelling is minimalistic and informative. It also includes the date that your juice has been bottled, along with the signature of the bottler! It’s a very nice touch.

On opening the bottle, I am greeting by a mouthwatering smell that instantly whisks me back to my childhood! I’d spend some more time smelling it but I can’t wait any longer to try it.

Inhale – The lemon taste is instantly recognizable as a Refresher Bar. There is no better way to describe it.

Exhale – A beautiful sherbet taste and a fizzy sensation are unleashed on the exhale. If you hadn’t already worked out the Refresher’s link by now, there is no mistaking it at this point. It’s so close a match that your jaws will start to ache with the memories of time spent chewing those bars. A slight fizz is left behind on the tongue along with a fresh lemon after taste, that is if you can wait long enough between vapes to let the aftertaste develop!

In conclusion – Rarely will you find an e-liquid that delivers what it claims to be as accurately as Hodges Home Brew “Refreshers”. My conclusion is, if you like Refresher Bars, you need to get this juice. If you don’t like Refresher bars, you should probably give this one a miss. And if you really, really like Refresher Bars, like me, order three bottles and they will give you another one free! There is nothing this vaper likes more than free stuff!

Thanks for reading.
