PARROTDOG BITTER BITCH IPA

Parrotdog Bitter Bitch IPA. This Kiwi brewer seems to box above its weight. A small operation that brings out beers that are widely acclaimed and they don’t even have a website yet.

Bitter Bitch IPA is an English style IPA with a Kiwi twist. Traditional English malts and bittering hops form the base. Then it’s been spiced by the addition of tropical style Kiwi hops. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find which Kiwi hops were used.

Opaque honey colour, fine head, low carbonation and light to medium body. Has a fruity, earthy, and tobacco hop aroma. 

Mild earthy malt flavour leading into a lemony citrus flavour, followed by a weed / tobacco flavour and bitter finish. It’s got a light mouthfeel which when combined with the bitter finish makes it go down easily.

I’m not mad keen on English style beers but the Kiwi hops add some zest.

 

7/10
