Just like you, but different
riiight Brewdog. Albino Squid Assassin. BeerClub beer of the week, and because I’ve been busy it’s a couple of days later than normal, but I’m sure they’ll forgive me.
up-front intensity matched with twisted complexity
330ml can of a beer that is 7.4% ABV ,making it 222 calories a serve, and 65 IBU, this would be 1.93 standard drinks of beer.
This tentacled terminator packs a punch – ten punches to be precise.
Each hop addition adds to the intense layers of depth in this red rye IPA.
Toasty caramel & cinder toffee from crystal malts, cacao richness from intensely roasted malt and the spiciness of rye. Zesty pithiness from citra and the robust resin of chinook.
This small batch exclusive brew is up-front intensity matched with twisted complexity.
The can features awesome custom art from Joe Wilson.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
I’ve just been for some exercise and am a bit thirsty, this may end quickly.
Quite a strong citrus aroma on opening, like grapefruits citrus.
In the glass its a slightly murky muddy brown but the aroma is brilliance , citrusy sugary, rich.
You get a lot of sugary malt and a tart tang of alcohol in this, it starts nice, but it’s very peaky and muddled
It’s not quaffing beer though, more a sipping and pondering thing, and as it warms the sharper things begin to tell through, the pine resin notes for example, they just squash the caramel thing that you just enjoyed.
An interesting beer though, mostly the name though, as there isn’t a lot in the beer that is different or quirky.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. It’s all talk and not a lot to back it up, fantastic can art, but the beer itself isn’t different enough or standout in any other way. I did rate it higher because the aroma is really stand out and the caramel thing does enough to keep you in the game
The double dip review
57th & 9th is the twelfth solo studio album by British singer-songwriter Sting, his first rock album in 13 years
To be honest it starts with good intentions then meanders down into some weird tantric madness of self indulgence.
Beer made with a speciality grain, most typically rye, but also common are rice, sorghum, millet, corn, buckwheat, oats and spelt. As this is a catch-all category, alcohol levels, bitterness, and color vary.
