Our resident beer writer (best job in the world, right?!) has sipped his way through everything from Emu Bitter to double hazy triple-IPAs.
Trying out this week’s sip, Jay Rooney gives his verdict on the Tinnie of the Week and whether it’s worth cracking one with a mate.
Brewcha Libre’s Monkey Business Black IPA
WHERE’S IT FROM?
Brewcha Libre, a gypsy brewer run by award-winning home brewer Ryan Walker.
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT IT?
What do you get when you combine the contrasting styles of a dark beer with a fruity, hoppy IPA?
Black India Pale Ales might sound a bit complex and unusual, but they offer a unique and delicious experience when executed well.
Monkey Business pours a stout-like jet black with a light brown head, but looks can be deceiving.
While there are some hints of roasted coffee and dark chocolate from the combination of six different malts, the true hero is the tropical aroma and flavour produced from the addition of Galaxy hops.
The smacks of passionfruit and zesty orange rind are an unexpected delight, while clean American ale yeast helps deliver a crisp, clean finish and hides the 7.5 per cent ABV.
There’s a lot going on in this drop, but the contrasting flavours all work together to take you on a unique journey well worth experiencing.
WHAT’S THE DAMAGE?
About $9 for a single can and $32 for a four-pack.
