A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #141 – Golden Eagle – Big Yank American IPA

Oh yes I did.  Golden Eagle Big Yank American IPA, on a Thursday!, Brewed by Golden Eagle Brewery Styled as a American Strong Ale in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Golden Eagle - Big Yank7.5% ABV in a 500ml glass, making it 3 standard drinks.

During 1944/45 the B17 Bomber – Big Yank – completed 50 combat missions, attacking targets throughout Germany.  

In true American IPA style, this beer packs a nose and mouthful of hops with a malt backbone and bitterness to match!

Not even much on the Golden Eagle website about this, but I’m looking forward to this, as I’ve not yet had a bad experience with the Golden Eagle.

Lovely hoppy aroma straight up, Fantastic dark brown colour, decent carbonation, and a good attempt at a head. A fair wallop of bitterness in this, the right amount, and backed with a decent malty back.  Nice citrus in this too, and decent length.

What this also does is hide that it’s a strong beer.

I’d hunt this out if it was on tap, this hits my spot nicely. The pdubyah-o-meter says 8.5 things on it’s scale of things. There’s not a lot not to like about this to be honest. If you’re up for an IPA, like the bitterness at a level that decent and carries itself well then this is the go.
