CAVALIER BREWING & CATFISH TAVERN DOUBLE LIFE IIPA

In somewhat of a tradition Melbourne brewery Cavalier have teamed up again with Fitzroy venue The Catfish to brew a beer. For The Catfish's third birthday Cavalier decided to release a double IPA as part of their Limited Release Series.

It’s hopped with Mosaic, Chinook, Ella and Amarillo and is 8% ABV.

Light amber colour, thin off-white head with a medium body and moderate to low carbonation. Toffee malt, sweet booze, moderately dank and tropical fruit aroma. Starts with a chewy toffee and bready malt.  A citrus and stonefruit cuts through the malt with a mild tropical fruit flavour, finishes with a sweet booze and astringent finish like a Cab Sav.

I find the malt and booze smother the hop flavours too much and it could do with a few more IBU’s to balance the booze sweetness.

Probably still prefer to drink this than eat a Catfish.

 

7/10
