Mismatch has gone back in time and used their original malt bill, including rye, from their first production beer, Archie’s Red Ale. This time, they’re playing around with their hop combinations in their ongoing pursuit of brewing the perfect Red IPA. Expect the palate to finish dry with a slight sweetness to hold up bitterness. There’s hint of spiciness from the rye and the crystal malt which adds another level of richness without being overly cloying. Citrus notes drive the bitterness also adding some pith notes. The aroma gives a perceived sweetness, with underlying notes of citrus, pine and resin.
As the name suggests, Mismatch Brewing Co. is a ‘mismatch(ed)’ bunch of industry professionals and beverage specialists, who joined forces to launch a brewing company in South Australia. Despite the difference in personalities and backgrounds their values when distilled is all about the product. They relish transparency – from what ingredients they use to where they brew their beers.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mismatch is one of many small brewing companies to launch in South Australia in the past few years and one that is expected to be seen more widely than most of their SA peers. They are more ambitious than most and they’re focused on making beers that value wide appeal as much as flavour.
