BEER HAIKU #55 666/Lakeman IPA

It was an unusually crisp early spring afternoon when the Thirsties assembled at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar for a spirited discussion of comparative philology, predicated on how best to render  the umlaut in English (see comments on last week’s haiku for further non-elucidation). This week’s new release from New Zealand was another collaboration, this time between Hamilton’s 666 and Taupo’s Lakeman featuring a blend of Chinook and Nelson Sauvin hops.

666/Lakeman IPA (6% ABV)

Sun shines through pine trees

Nothing devilish about that

Taupo taniwha

Food match: bacon buttie, with or without lettuce and avocado; Gruyere

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: fantasising about bacon butties.

Stay tuned for further adventures of I Ragazzi Assetati (e le Ragazze Assetate)…
