We are off again into the world of the Brewdog fanzine, I think I’ve tried 8/15 so far, and nothing has set the world on fire yet, although the first of this batch might do that…
Clown King – 12% – American Barley Wine
Chewy toffee malt, overlaid with a driving bitterness, sticky fruit character, and surprisingly light finale. Lots of hops in here, Magnum, Simcoe, Mosaic and Artanum. This sounds like a perfect blend to me.
Jet Trash v2 – 6.9% – IPA
Double dry-hop edition with Cascade and Columbus in the kettle and Citra, Simcoe, Cascade, Chinook and Mosaic added as dry hops. I should drink v1 before I have this one I suppose.
Zip Code – 4.2% – Lager
Lager with a Franconian accent, Perle and Mittelfruh hops in the kettle and Mandarina Bavaria in the whirlpool. This one has already been sampled and to me this one just tasted like Export 33, transporting me back to 1988.
