It’s time to hit the surf with another great IPA from one of my favourite breweries, Blackman’s in Torquay.
The Good: Bright fresh aromas and a mild bitterness make this an extremely refreshing brew. The use of salt water in this IPA isn’t something I’ve come across before, but it creates an almost savory character in the aftertaste. I’ve tried this on tap at the brewery and from the tin, and can faithfully confirm this as a great brew.
The Bad: Maybe the finish with the salt water might be a bit much for the more casual beer drinker, but I quite liked it.
Enjoyment: This is the perfect drop for a warm afternoon. It’s the classic “I went back again” type of beer, so I obviously enjoy it quite a bit. 100% transparency, I would say my preference is Blackman’s Reginald IPA, but that’s only because it’s one of my faves. If you want to try something genuinely unique and genuinely good, then give this one a bash.
