Just like you, but different
Mythica Brewing. There’s two choices, I made one – Mythica Incubus I might make the other if it tempts me.
with a spicy finish
This is a 500ml bottle of a beer, nicely full bottle wrapped too, 7% ABV, so about 2.3 standard drink units
Brewed for the the Mythica Brewing people in Silverdale, north of Auckland an India Pale Ale (IPA) (red) style. If you know a brewer in Silverdale you’ll know the brewer for this, said Columbo, and he likes to make good beer goodly.
Bright ruby hued ale driven by a complex malt profile giving biscuit and toffee flavours with a
spicy finish. Low on bittering hops and dry hopped with Citra and Nelson Sauvin.
Not like a typical Red IPA
INCUBUS (Sp. Humulus)
A demon or evil spirit originating from medieval legend that descends upon sleeping persons, usually taking on the form of a male to seduce females. Incubus humulus is a species that uses magically infused hop beverages to attract its favourite prey – IPA drinkers
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Dazzlingly good bottle art on this.
Caught out by the total explosion of hops from this, brilliant! Rich sugary too.
Darker rich red brown with a lovely full foam head, a lovely looking beer in the glass as well as in the bottle.
That’s a bitterness that was larger than I thought, and there is an enormous amount of software malt sugar thing going on that cushions and balances this, finish is dryish but not arid and it’s lingering and aftertaste is strong in this.
Alarmingly easy to drink this is a beer that ticks off a lot of the right boxes in what you might look for in a beer, I think it’s downfall is that there isn’t quite enough length in drinking this and it’s all a bit short in a journey, there’s nothing else to develop or taste, it is what it is.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. Aroma, taste, looks, and overall dry enjoyable, not sure about the whole journey of tastes though

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.
