Beers come from a can, they where put there by a man! Would be a good line to a song, but unfortunately already taken by a peach! Seems to be a growing trend with craft brewers in recent times to can their beers, which Six String Brewing Co have done with their entire core beer range. Finally now we are seeing their range make its way north of the border from this Central Coast brewery.
Their Dark Red IPA pours a dark brown probably more than red, a decent fluffy off white head with good lacing. It has a hoppy rich citrus fruit aroma with hints of caramel. A good balance of citrus and caramel flavour to this beer giving it a smooth mouthfeel and good bitterness.
Great beer, so I’ll chase up some of their other core range beers, that I’ve seen popping up in craft beer bottle shops around Brisbane, to see if they are as good as this one…should be!
