For the second week in a row, notable Dutch brewer De Molen took pole position as Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar’s weekly new release. This time out, the offer was in the (is it still?) trendy Black IPA style, albeit one that weighs in at a beefy eight-plus per cent.
De Molen Zwart & Wit Black IPA (8.4% ABV)
Wood fired, richly smoked
Contemplating muggy days
Sheep in wolf’s clothing
Food match: smoked salmon on cream cheese and pumpernickel, pizza
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: you’re feeling trendy.
