Marty’s Craft Brew Review
Pirate Life IPA
Arrrrrrrrrgh! A free life on the open sea, it’s surely the Pirate Life for me!
This is a big one – big, bold and aggressive, just like a good pirate should be! With so much going on here, Pirate Life IPA is surprisingly well balanced and refreshing.
Colour: Wonderful dark caramel, with a pure white head that would make Davy Jones proud!
Nose: Shiver me timbers – I love it – this smells like what beer was make to be – sweet caramel, dried apricot, fresh stone fruit and some burnt toffee to boot. There’s a great fresh pine intensity about this too. If I could smell colour, this beer would smell like a huge jade diamond, straight from a freshly dug up treasure chest!
Palate: The initial taste is quite sweet, me hearties, which morphs into a very full bodied toffee malt flavour. Hoist the flag! The malt then gets boarded by a beautiful tongue coasting btiterness. Aye Aye, cap’n! The bitterness is them smoothed out by a creamy back palate aftertaste… make him walk the plank!
That’s it! I be out of here to buy me a boat!
