BBC - Kauri Double IPA product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsThe flagship beer of the BBC, Live & Loud! Rooted to a strong foundation of Gladfield malts and oozing nine NZ & US hop varietals this is the Lord of the double IPA's.

Like Wood Pigeons are attracted to the Kauri tree this beer will be a magnet for anyone who demands only the best beer New Zealanders can make. So give a cheer and a tribute to the Kauri, a true native found in forests around our hometown here in Birkenhead.

Inspired by the local Kauri Forests that we have here in Birkenhead, Kauri Double IPA was built as a big, bold, awesome statement for the past of our local area which included Kauri Gumdiggers and Kauri Tree harvesters of the 19th Century.

Getting this bottle out, the image immediately caught my eye though I can't say that I love the picture or that it would make me want to take a closer look but that's the beauty of being a reviewer. Popping it open I could immediately smell that it was going to be more bitter than its cousin, which I had already tried, but I wasn't out off by the smell. Glancing at the back I saw that this has a very high IPA, coming in at 65-70 so I was concerned this bitterness would be too strong for me and so only pored myself a small serving to drink. It foamed beautifully as it was poured out and has a lovely golden colour to it.

Giving it a taste, I did find that the bitterness was rather strong but funnily enough, not as strong as I was expecting and so it wasn't too bad and I found myself, albeit very slowly, finishing off my small amount. I didn't want to leave it at that though, so I poured myself another small amount and then added some tropical fruit juice, at a ratio of two to one, roughly. It didn't create an overly pleasant drink but it wasn't horrible either, I found myself able to easily finish the drink though I didn't like the initial aftertaste, the bitter didn't hang around for long. I then went for the traditional shandy, beer and lemonade, going for the same ratio as above, the lemonade completely offset the bitterness of the beer but it dulled the flavour, so I didn't enjoy it as much.

While I must admit that I did actually like it more than any other beer I've ever tried, I won't be buying it for myself, however... Next time my mates invite me and the kids over for a barbie I'll pick up a bottle of this to share with them.
