Friday Frothies – 8 Wired Cosmic Chaos Sour Black IPA Review

Brad’s Friday Staff Pick! 

8 Wired Cosmic Chaos Sour Black IPA 

ABV: 7.5%

“Like the Universe itself this brew is dark and tranquil in appearance, but once you delve in, it’s chaotic intensity really hits. A psychedelic experimentation in how far we can push it, boldly going where few have gone before. It’s a trip across the palate; sour, hoppy & bringing balance to The Force. Excuse me while I kiss the sky.”

Sour Black IPA… let that sink in (or better yet drink one!)

This beauty from across the pond in New Zealand is from the brilliant brewery, 8 Wired. Known for doing some amazing hoppy drops and barrel aged sour brews, they made this beer for lovers of hops, sour stuff and darkness!

Malty and hoppy on the nose with a hint of cold brew coffee like aroma and just a touch sourness.. you’ll be able to tell from the start that this is a palate trip! So dark and mysterious, you’ll be taken on a wild ride filled with berries, malt, coffee, red wine, hops… there is so much flavour I am surprised this hasn’t torn a hole in the space time continuum!

A tasteful concoction to please many; hop heads, malt maniacs, sour sippers, wine lovers…and people that are out of this world.
