The Six String Dark Red IPA It'll Blow Your Hair Back
What is better than opening a can of beer? Probably a lot of things, but opening a can of brew is on my list. It's cathartic. It reminds me that the day is over and it's time to sit back. The crack, the fizz, the burst of beery mist; its music to my ears.
When Next Door Cellars asked if I could review this brew for their October specials, I was excited. Not only because it was a free can of booze, but because this beer was my first red love.
Six Strings Dark Red IPA has been a favourite of mine for some time now. It's a style of beer that was introduced to me through this very brew which catapulted my love dark IPAs and reds. This brew is so dark that light needs to catch the red hues through the glass, a bit like a cola. It's colour anticipates the taste. Caramel and chocolate malty flavour, and very bitter. The hops will kick in as soon as your nose rims the glass. It's a lovely brew.
Colour: Dark Red
Taste: Chocolatey caramel bitter deliciousness.
Overall: How could I ever forget my first Red love. This one is staple.

About: Let’s be honest, would I be writing a beer blog if I didn’t love (with all my heart and to the death) beer...? Maybe, but I love beer!
I am not, by any means, a beer expert. I am not a harbinger, messenger, conduit sent from the fermented Gods. I am but a mortal man; a man with dreams and emotions, experiencing craft beer.
A few years ago, a friend of mine (let’s call her Yvette) started a ‘100 Beers in One Year’ challenge. Some mainstream beers, mostly craft beer, and a lot of single batch brews so the challenge wasn’t drinking 100 beers (the Untappd app would prove I did that in a month), the real challenge was finding the beers. My partner, Graham, and I found ourselves caught up in the list with her. We travelled Australia from coast to coast (literally), searching and finding, and of course drinking the hoppy gems. Many were found, and consumed in the fabric chairs at Archive. So this led to many visits to Archive, my foray to Armakeggon, the start of some great friendships, my love for this great beer establishment, and my ignited passion and thirst for awesome craft brews.
People who know me are aware that I am a sucker for the sour brews, I love them. Of course, I don’t discriminate. I love beers from both extreme ends in the beer spectrum. However, I’m still learning about beer and trying different beers and styles for the first time. So think of this blog as my journey, an imparting of some wisdom, and a conversation of our very beery opinions.
