Just like you, but different
Boneface Shake Your Blood. A red IPA. This one a gift from the brewer, on whom I threw my pitiful self, and they took me up and fit me up with their new beer. I love free beer 🙂 I did say that I’d be honest with it. Lets be honest, Red IPA!!! Who doesn’t like a Red IPA.
bound to break your heart
This is a brilliantly presented 500ml bottle of a beer that is 7.5% ABV, that’s 225 calories a serve size, and thats’ about 3 standard drinking units in NZ. Lovely foil work on that label.
Shake Your Blood is a bloody big hoppy red IPA.
It sings songs of caramel, toffee, fruity citrus, and finishes with bitter but delicious notes.
A beer inspired by rock legends, it’s bound to break your heart as soon as it’s gone.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Aroma is, of course, a familiar hoppy thing, deep dank, lovely.
Pours like the colour of a nice port, red caramel brown and is dark like dark place, with a surprising head of just nearly white that is full, firm and in fine form.
Deep redolent red. Bitter bitterness, with a belting middle cushion and lingering green hop note. It is so full of malt that is almost struggling with itself, but there is a lot going on in this, a competition for top dog. What a fight!
As it warms it kicks even harder on the caramel in this, and it handles it well.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 of its things from the thing. A right belter of a beer this, full of itself and proud. Alarmingly pretty and not holding back on the malts, caramel, hops and it is all pretty much in check and behaved. But not a beer to be messed with because it’s serious stuff, and with this highly drinkable matched with the higher ABV will lead you astray like a pop-star groupie. Like I’d know about that.
A Properly good bit of beer, beware….
The double dip review
Portugal. The Man is an American rock band from Wasilla, Alaska.
Have to say that this album is fairly rocking it.
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.
