Bright Tank Big Red Smeg Head Red IIPA

Style
Red IIPA
ABV

Bright Tank’s limited release program continues apace with hip hop and science fiction related pop culture references seemingly the only anchor. Presumably, Wu Tang Clan playing Comic-Con would be the team's dream release party or, in this beer's case, Smeg and the Heads, given the allusion to cult British TV show Red Dwarf.

Pouring a dark amber/rust colour, grapefruit and lime are prominent with the malt bill supplying caramel, melonidian characters and some toast. Near 8 percent ABV booze provides weight, bitterness balances rather than dominates and the whole tribute probably deserves a curry pairing, something Lister would likely be angling for rather than just another chicken soup.
