4 PINES KELLER DOOR IMPERIAL INDIA BROWN ALE

4 Pines Keller Door Imperial India Brown Ale. You’ve got to give it to 4 Pines, they have a crack at brewing a range of different beer styles.

Their Keller Door Series allows them to show off their creative side. This one is no exception, an Imperial India Brown Ale. Not really a style you hear much about. Big, malty and packed with hop flavour. Kind of like Black IPA’s younger brother. I couldn’t find what malts and hops were used but it’s 8% ABV and 70 IBU.

Reddy brown colour, fine slightly yellow/green head with small bubbles of hop oils. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A delicious smooth pine hop aroma.

Starts with a big wave of pine hop flavour, followed by a chocolate and nutty malt flavour with a roasted malt aftertaste. Nice resinous mouthfeel with the hop flavours lingering. The alcohol is well hidden and there are no bittersweet or boozy flavours. It’s a lot hoppier than I was expecting however, it’s well balanced by the malt.

Big on malt and hop flavour, this is my favourite 4 Pines release to date.

 

9/10
