8 WIRED TALL POPPY INDIA RED ALE

8 Wired Tall Poppy India Red Ale. Oh, this is different, this is confusing. They claim that this beer is the greatest common denominator (denominator? Think back to High School Mathematics; ooh, I need a drink).

A blast of floral hops with a bit of bitterness (can you smell bitterness?) is inhaled as you raise the glass. The first sip has the wonderful hoppy bitterness that I love and then the roast malt caramel comes through.

I don’t understand this beer, but I want more. The maltiness almost overrides the beautiful floral hoppiness; can I taste Musk Sticks. There is too much going on in this beer, but who cares, it is wonderfully balanced.

Luckily my brother-in-law picked up two of these from Sydney Wine Merchants.

 

10/10
