BREWCULT THANKS CAPTAIN OBVIOUS

Brewcult Thanks Captain Obvious. In an unusual step for Brewcult they decided to brew a beer to style. Most of their previous releases have combined beer styles to create hybrids or something leftfield like their porter with balsamic vinegar.

This time round they brewed an American IPA to enter it in the Strong Pale Ale class at the 2014 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA). As a result there is no rule breaking and it’s brewed exactly to style using some of the most popular hops for an American IPA: Simcoe, Citra and Centennial.

Golden yellow colour with moderate carbonation, medium body and a creamy, hoppy head. Delicious pine and tropical fruit aroma. Strong citrus, pine and tropical fruit flavour. The hop flavours and bitterness linger and it’s moderately resinous. The finish is slightly dry and refreshing. It's not as boozy, resinous or heavy as some other American IPA’s with similar level of flavour.

Ah Brewcult, even when you try to be boring and predictable you still excel.

 

9/10
