Just like you, but different
A Red IPA ? Yes, a Hop Federation – Red IPA
A 500ml bottle of a 6.4%ABV beer, 192 calories a serve. and it’s 49 IBU things and 2.4 standard drinks in NZ.
Brewed with New Zealand and European malts with a big dose of hops from both New Zealand and America. Our RIPA has a full-bodied malt character that packs a punch on the palate and gives off a great, fresh aroma.
This India Pale Ale is a descendant of a tradition with deep colonial roots, stretching back several centuries to when pale ales were boosted with hops and alcohol to withstand the long sea voyage from England to India.
There is a hops variety from Riwaka – called .. he wrote sarcastically. But this has the following;
Malt varieties: Gladfield Ale, Red Back, Aurora and Shepherd Delight
Hop varieties: Simcoe, New Zealand Cascade, Motueka and Southern Cross
So that was a lesson.
Dark rich brown red pour with a small and persistent head. Aroma in the glass blooms into something stronger and even more pleasing.
Gosh that’s a mouthful of pleasing. Wash of bitter and then a layer of warm malts.
Not overly endowed with body or a full mouthfeel this is however a really nice two step journey and a short and pleasing finish.
Really nice. Great arom,a nicely bitter, lovely sweetness. I little bit in love.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 a of its things from the thing. It’s really nicely balanced and gives a few flavour layers that are really enjoyable.
The double dip review
New beer, new album – The Black Keys – Turn Blue
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
