Just like you, but different
A nano-brewery with a great name, and an interestingly named beer.
now hitting the big time
From the FYO station a one litre bottle of the 6.2% ABV beer, so this is 4.89 standard drink units, oh and about 186 calories a serve size.
Brewed for Mash Palace, this is in the style that is India Pale Ale (IPA) and I fairly certain that this might have happened in Auckland.

In contrast, where our esteemed Prime Minister argued in a prevailing effort to keep the ‘green stuff’ away from our shores, we search for ways to increase our intake of a similarly pungent green stuff.
It’s morally indefensible to use this many hops, but we do it anyway
So, what could possibly go wrong?
Grass hop aroma is strong in this one, rich sweet too.
Colour is that lovely darker bright brown orange and this looks to have a lovely level of carbonation.
Lovely pour, it’s even brighter in smaller glass, and the head is magnificent, full and white and fluffy and persistent. Aroma in the glass blooms with a sweet intensity and just a hint of peppery spice.
This is quite the tasty beer, it’s not every bitter initially, and there is a gorgeous amount of sweetness in it, and a bonus is that the finish erring to dry isn’t arid and difficult. Plus I had a burp, which might have been greedy gulping, and not in front of MrsPdubyah who might frown, even if we’ve been married a lifetime.
This is really nice easy drinking soft on the palate beer, but given a moment the bitterness sparked and dazzles a bit, and the finish reminds you that you’re having a properly good beer done well.
For drinkability then this is seriously good beer, for taste it’s also a bit good, and for a beer, well it’s also a bit good. I’d be proved wrong but I think that this might only be the 2nd commercial quantity beer they’ve produced, and as I don’t go out often I didn’t have the other one.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 10 of its things from the thing. Although the Pdubyah-o-meter is a random chance thing I have to really, it does tick a lot of the boxes as to why this might be a go-to beer, a stand out, and one that is memorable and a bit wanty. It is a slightly hopped up IPA, but not to that level where it is all piney and resinous and dry and hard going after a couple, and as a result it really is quite smooth drinking. This has sparking bitterness and the towards dry but not so much finish, and then there is that great amount of sweetness that this has in the carry. It really is just a good bit of beer.
Perhaps the reason that you need to try different beer every time because someday you find the Princess, and it is a bit of love at first sup.

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.
