Badlands India Pale Ale
Brewery: Badlands Brewery, Orange, NSW
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 330ml Bottle
Not for the faint hearted - a true IPA. Big and brash in every direction - bitter, pungent fruity hop backbone but with the malt complexity and slightly higher alcohol to bring the package back into balance.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Was expecting a stronger flavour from an IPA but was disappointed. Tasted watery and was very carbonated
This is a solid IPA. It has a good IPA taste and is reliable taste.
Not to Shabby a beer here
Nice subtle IPA here, get a nice malt taste to start with followed by the spice kick, not bad
I drink both the PA & the IPA, both are consistently high standard, & quality. The IPA should be called " Hoppier PA"as it isn't what most modern breweries call IPA. So you won't find lip numbing hop profile, like you might get from most American breweries. USA, the land of "overkill". What you get is an easy drinking beer. More hops than the PA making it much more flavoursome, Still enough hops, to satisfy hop lovers, but the malt flavour dominates, along with a delicious roasted oatmeal biscuit taste.
Bad - not even a one star really!
Awful. Poorly made beer. Lacks body, happiness, flavour, head, you name it - the are many big brand name commercial beers that are much better than this one. As craft beers go, this is a dud. I wouldn't drink it even at half the price.
