I’ve been dabbling with a few new malts in the brewery, leaning into some of the more interesting things coming out of Germany and here in New Zealand. More about NZ later, but from BestMalz in Germany comes Red X - a new malt designed to have a bright red colour, while keeping the gentle bready/grainy notes their Pilsner malt is famous for. For Lie #11, I decided to blend my two favourite things - German malt, and old-style West Coast American hops for a “not-quite-red-IPA” that pours a beautiful colour in the glass before hitting you with that oldskool IPA nose of pine needles and bright citrus. You know? How IPA used to smell before it got all tropical fruit salad on us! It’s got a nice whack of resinous piney bitterness also, so those of you complaining that IPAs have been getting too sweet lately - I got you!
