Bach DUSKRIDER Red IPA
What to expect:
Incredibly satisfying hop-malt combo
The beer-drinking world briefly turned its collective back on Red IPA, it seems, with many of the icons of this style disappearing from supermarket shelves as the haze craze asserted itself. Bach hasn’t brewed Duskrider for three years, but it makes a welcome return in this competition and shouts from the rooftops about the appeal of this style. The combo of hoppy goodness and a caressing caramel, toffee malt character is hard to beat when it comes to complex and satisfying flavour. This version is unfiltered which allows the hops to really shine against the flavoursome but gentle malt base. Everything is incredibly well-integrated but the hop notes keep building throughout the performance. The judges loved the drinkability of a well-made beer.

The richer caramel malts notes and well-integrated hops make this a well-rounded beer suited to hearty meals such as shepherd's pie or bangers and mash.
