Bastard Brag Black IPA – ABV 7.2%
Taking its name a version of poker, this light-bodied Black IPA is drinkable and balanced with roasted dark malts and citrusy Simcoe and Centennial hops.
Look: Clear and dark with nice amount of lacing with a creamy beige head.
Aroma: Roasted malt well balanced with light citrus interludes
Taste: Malt, charcoal, grapefruit and pine, combined well in an easy drinking beer with a nice dry finish.
Food Pairing: This beer works well with smoky, spicy flavours. Try it with Mexican food, or a paella made with chorizo.
Verdict: Bastard Brag’s full back story includes being initially brewed as batch 333, inspired by the version of poker favoured at the By The Horns brewery – in which three 3’s is the strongest hand – and this is a full house of an IPA.
