A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #879 – Behemoth – Sauvin Slayer

Behemoth Sauvin Slayer. I planned on having this on Friday Night, you know start the evening off with a bang and it goes well for me. Turns out that I didn’t actually buy this beer on Friday and so this is a day late and story later.

… will take you to the other side..

This is a 500 ml bottle of a beer that is 8% ABV, and 75 IBU, this would be 240 calories a serve size, and this would be 3.2 drink units in NZ.

Brewed by Behemoth Brewing Company in the style that is  Imperial IPA and they’re in Auckland, New Zealand

So, What could possibly go wrong?

Well apart from getting excited over a beer that I thought I’d brought and hadn’t who knows.

A beer that has a huge grass aroma on opening, be disappointing it if hadn’t.

Bright yellow orange pout with a lovely full head, that lovely Sauvin hop aroma that I really quite like.

Dialled up to 11 bitterness there is no holding back on this one, if anything it’s undersold.

behemoth-sauvin-slayerBitter tropical and not so tropic fruit such as gooseberries are the core of this, but it really is that intense beer bitterness that is dominant. Surprisingly though it is quite pleasant at the finish and not dry or crushing on the palate.

But it’s not quaffing beer, on no, no sir.

Not sure that this was the best choice for me on a Sunday afternoon, or perhaps it was, because on a one beer day this is pretty much a great choice.

Particularly after some exercise and the road back to my bikini body 🙂

The aroma is something that I have to mention again, if you like this hop variety then this aroma is magnificent. I didn’t know that it’d be this bitter, and that then shows that the brewer is on top of his game.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. It’s not quite clear cut to be very good, it’s very close but I don’t do fractions that often and if I did it’d get confusion quickly, like my use of English at times. It’s better than good though.

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? The local Liquorland had it, but good places would have it.
  • Am I enjoying it? I am it’s quite the thing to have a big hoppy beer as your one beer.
  • Would I have another? Which is odd, because no, there are other big hop beers to have.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? I might because there are other less hopped beers using this variety and it’d be a lovely side-by-side to be able to compare the use and outcome.

If you’re playing along at home I’m adding a track from the album that I’m listening to to a playlist on Spotify

Music for this:  The Weeknd‘ and ” Starboy” on Spotify 

Starboy is the third studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter The Weeknd . It was released on November 25


Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
