A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #864 – Garage Project – Party and Bullshit

Garage Project Party and Bullshit. Beer in a Can. Nice can art, for their 5th birthday according to the can notes. I wonder if it’s an either/or Party or BS.

bigger and juicier

440ml canned beer with an ABV of 6.2% ABV so that’s 2.2 standard drink units of beer, 201 calories a serve size, and this

Brewed by Garage Project in the style that is  India Pale Ale (IPA) and they are in Wellington, New Zealand

West Coast IPA Challenge 2016

Party up the front....

Party up the front….

East entry – Party & Bullshit – our B.I.G. East Coast hazy hop bomb dropping at the 9th Annual West Coast IPA Challenge. East Coast Represent.

East Coast anthem IPA – a big ol’ hop poppa of a beer, packing in intense mango, tropical fruit hit from US big guns, Simcoe and Mosaic.

It’s just bigger and juicier than it’s bitter West Coast counterpart, like sippin’ hazy hop nectar from a can. It’s all good.

“This beer is unfiltered, so when rating the appearance had to make an exception as this beer is as murky as a murky thing.”

So, What could possibly go wrong?

Hop fresh aroma on opening, I think the modern parlance might be ‘dank’.

Crikey that’s the worst looking beer I’ve had, and then there are the dregs that you’ve forgotten about they’re all in there too. a murky milky cloudy disaster looking of a beer. Little head on top, but that’s not the worst thing now is it.

garage-project-party-and-bullshit-copyTropical aroma bursts forth in the glass, could almost be a fruit juice.

It’s wonderfully bitter, just at that lovely level where it plays on the tongue without making you gasp and is very even and balanced.  Gives you the sharpness and peaks where you expect them, washes over the tongue and leaves you with a lovely lingering taste and none of that dry finish stuff

It’s a party going on in my mouth ….

A thoroughly enjoyable beer, except for the looks, it really is an ugly duckling, and I’ve not even got to the floating rubbish bits that this hides, and I’ve spied them settled at the bottom of the glass. So I have to either be brave and suck it up, or let them settle and drink slowly and not unsettle them from the bottom.

Odds are that I’ll forget them and drink them, what’s the worst that could happen?

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. Ugly as sin, this is also a brilliant aromatic and easy drinking beer. Top marks for aroma, flavour and drinkability. It’s all Party no BS

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? The local Liquorland, but I’ve seen it all over the place
  • Am I enjoying it? Yes, it’s really nice.
  • Would I have another? Yes, of course this is a grand bit of beer.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? Yes, because it’s maddeningly ugly and off putting and delightfully flavoursome and drinkable.

Music for this:  ” Madness ” have a new album ” Can’t Touch Us Now” on Spotify 

Madness are an English ska band from Camden Town, London, that formed in 1976. One of the most prominent bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s

INDIA PALE ALE & IPA

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.
