DIA DE LOS MUERTOS DOA IPA 

Cerveceria Mexicana Dia De Los Muertos DOA IPA, to use it's extraordinarily long name. I found this beer amongst the usual suspects at a “Liquor Emporium” in Alexandria, Sydney.

I saw it was an IPA and took a closer look at the label and was surprised to learn it’s from Mexico. Let’s face it, when you think Mexico, you don’t automatically think of beers with a lot of flavour. (I’m looking at you Corona and Dos Equis.)

‘Hop On or Die’ it says on the label. There is no other info other than it’s 5.9% ABV and part of the ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ (Day Of The Dead) series.

Cerveceria Mexicana is the third largest brewery in Mexico. At time of writing they are expanding their brewery to increase their capacity by 35%. This is expected to accommodate for the growing demand for their beers through out the world, particularly the US.

It looks better than you’re average commercial beer - Honey colour, moderate carbonation with a fine head. Slight grainy malt and nasty permanent marker aroma. Medium to light mouthfeel. Generic malt flavour, hint of sweetness followed by chemical, permanent marker-like flavour. As you drink it you can almost feel a hangover starting.

Death would be preferable to hopping on this bandwagon.
