RED DUCK BLACK BENGAL DARK IPA

Red Duck Black Bengal Dark IPA. Dark or Black IPA or Hoppy Porter; there’s not much difference. Purrumbete Brewing, or Red Duck Brewery as they are better known make a plethora of beers and it’s a bit hit or miss. I thought that the Bengal IPA was OK, but this is a hit.

It pours an impenetrable black with a dark head and you picture the chocolate dipped hop cones as you raise the glass. This powerful aroma carries through to the flavour, with a very full malty mouthfeel over the top of rich fruity bitter hops.

This is much more enjoyable than the reasonably good standard Bengal IPA. Now, if they could stop brewing all the weird and not so wonderful beers (like the Gruitest) and concentrated on beers like this I would be much happier.

 

9/10
