Six String Dark Red IPA 375ml Can

$5.50

Its not red. Or is it? What at first seems like another easy classification as a black IPA gets mighty confused when you hold it up to the light because, yes, theres definitely redness there. And as there would be because the recipe is based very loosely on the West Coast USA style Red Ale, tweaked and nudged until its arguably become Six Strings signature beer. The red colour here comes from rich caramel and chocolate malts, which also give off a contrasting creamy white head. Once youve stopped looking at it and get it close to your face, youll get the hops, hops, hops. Theyve been added late in the brewing process; at the end of the boil, in the whirlpool and dry hopping during fermentation. Yet, despite the heavy hopping regime, between those big malts and the big hops its a balanced beer. You could argue it keeps its balance a little too well. At 6.6 per cent ABV, you might even say it sneaks up on you. Abv: 6.5% Availability: Limited
