Blackman's Brewery Angry Reg

They love making IPAs at Blackman’s Brewery and fortunately, they tend to be quite adept at brewing them. Their Same Day IPA series has shown a spotlight on beer freshness, their Needs More lets singular (and occasionally dual) hops shine and before either of those beer series launched, they were brewing Angry Reg, a dialled up version of their popular core range Reginald IPA. It's since become something of a phenomenon too, with the big beer in big tins being released each year when the days are short and a 500ml tin of hops feels like the perfect gift for a long night.

That popularity stems from the fact it's the kind of big, bitter and balanced style of double West Coast IPA, you should expect from Blackman’s. Loaded with Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic hops that were added to the beer in multiple forms, you're immediately hit with a dank and resinous pine, along with oily citrus and grapefruit rind. The high ABV provides a touch of richness to the beer but with a clear, strong and distinguished bitterness, any sweeter edges soon disappear. With Blackman's once again pushing hard the message that this beer should be enjoyed as fresh as possible, Angry Reg is likely to disappear quite quickly too.
