RED TAPE BREWING BLACK MAMBA IPA

Red Tape Brewing Co. Single Batch Black Mamba IPA. This is the old James Squire Brewery on King Street Wharf, Sydney. The current owners battled for so long to get it up and running that they named it Red Tape Brewing. I digress, this a single batch to highlight they versatility.

I was thinking about ordering their Wood Duck Pale Cream Ale when a couple of blokes in front of me ordered it. It looked like a hand pump from a carbonated tap.

I went for the Black Mamba. It poured just as bad. The initial hops aroma quickly faded to leave a sweet malty beer, with a cloying mouthfeel not suited to the warm weather. The hops did show through towards the end, but by that time I was looking for something better.

Black Mamba has nothing to do with the poisonous snake or the porn industry, more's the pity.
