A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Three Boys – Dystopia Double IPA

Honestly I’ve got to stay in touch more with what’s going on, although most of the enjoyment in new beers is finding them unexpected. Double the surprise as this was in cans, there were a lot of their beers in cans. I chose one; the Three Boys Dystopia IPA – the can says “Double IPA”

Three Boys Brewery make the Three Boys Dystopia in 🇳🇿 Christchurch, New Zealand, it’s styled as an IIPA DIPA – Imperial / Double IPA or an IPA at 7.3%. This is 1.8 standard drinks of a beer.


That has a very all aroma on opening. In the glass this becomes more of that with a peppery undertone that is quite interesting. It looks paler than I was expecting, for no reason, they’re usually this colour, and the head is sitting there living its best life.

Well, that a hammer of a deep note, but then there’s this luscious softer almost caramel note about it that just settles it all down, removes the distractions and just carries this beer to a lovely and lingering finish. Fancifully I get a hint of the alcohol tang if I were to need more words to write.

There are only nice words to write about this though, it’s a lovely beer, going about itself quietly and in a very even and very enjoyable way.

It’s a step up from a usual IPA and it’s lovely, it’s also a north down from a big DIPA, mostly around that ABV, but I know what’s best for me on a warm afternoon in the sun.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. This is ready enjoyable beer, it is what it says it it, and is both loud and full and restrained and easy going, there’s a lot to like about it in different notes and hits that it gives up as you drink it. Thoroughly nice.

Designed BEFORE the COVID-19 crisis, the Dystopia will be an ever-changing IPA that we can experiment with. Lemon and lime hit upfront with a taunting hint of apricot swim in this hefty beauty. A light in colour yet huge in flavour double IPA with a rich malt sweetness

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.
