RED DUCK BOBCAT

Red Duck Bobcat I was very keen to try this American IPA by Red Duck because I find their American style brews are their standouts.

It’s a single-hopped Simcoe IPA which is a respectable 7.5% ABV. It’s the first of Red Duck’s seasonal range to be released in a manly 500ml bottle. Originally only 800 bottles were released in 2013. However, due to popular demand a second batch was brewed and released in May 2014.

Golden yellow, slightly opaque with large hop oil bubbles. As described in the tasting notes there’s a mild peach and passionfruit aroma. Tropical fruit flavour with an underlying earthy flavour.

It reminds me a little of the Lord Nelson’s Double Nelson IPA. Bitter finish with the hops lingering a bit. The alcohol is well hidden.

A good beer but not as great as I thought it would be.

 

7/10
