IPA Tasting With Akasha’s Dave Padden & Merrick Watts

Dave Padden head brewer and co-owner of Akasha Brewing Company caught up with Craft Cartel’s Ben Malouf and 2GB’s Merrick Watts on the Food & Wine Show last night to talk craft beer trends, the importance of the two schooner test, and why cans trump bottles.

The on-air chat culminated with a tasting of Dave’s renowned IPAs including his big bopper – the freshly released Akasha Korben D IIPA.

Well balanced, Korben D hides its hefty alcohol volume (8.5%) behind American ale, Munich and Gladiator malts before making way for the star of the show, a gargantuan dose of late addition Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Drink it while it’s fresh.
