SKA / BRASH SKANKIN DIRTY IMPERIAL IPA

Ska/Brash Skankin Dirty Imperial IPA. A collaborative brew between US breweries Ska Brewing and Brash. A big ballsy imperial IPA which is 9% ABV and 129 IBU. I tried this on tap at The Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst, Sydney.

Red amber colour with a fine head with large hop oil bubbles. Caramel and pine aroma. Medium body, moderate carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malt flavour with a resinous pine hop flavour and a bittersweet finish.  The sweet caramel malt flavour and booze aftertaste is a bit overpowering for my palate.

Like a lot of other beers with high ABV it tastes relatively sweet despite the high IBU level.

 

7/10
