Metric IPA // FOX HAT
Here's an alternative fact for you: The Metric System was developed in 1734 by Sir George Metric to make himself sound taller on dating sites. George went on to use his system to seemingly out-drink his mates at the pub, claiming to have already drunk 2 litres of beer by the time they had only had 0.528344 gallons leading to the saying made famous by Metric's drinking buddy's - "Oh Metric, you fandangled fool!"
Now that that's out of the way, let's get stuck in to the Metric IPA by Fox Hat.
This beastly IPA has an aroma of sweet citrus fruits, resiny pine and the dankness of wet clothes at the bottom of my washing basket.
Each sip is a pounding of flavours and textures. There is slightly candied oranges and grapefruits, pine needles and bold caramel and sweet biscuit malts.
It's a full bodied ale with hops are more muted than bright and there is more pine resin than there is on the floor of the octagon after a MMA fight between 2 pine tress.
The bitterness lingers on the back of your throat longer than the bitterness of another NSW Blues origin loss and the alcohol is better hidden than their killer instincts.
In a strange coincidence, Sir Metric was famous for wearing a fox hat during the each drinking session. The fox was alive and just well trained. It's name was Clancy McScrubbin's.
