Temple Brewing 666

Style
Red IPA
ABV
6.66%

If you’re going to brew a beer called 666, you better make sure you get the ritual right. A hop out of place here, too much booze over there and suddenly you’re 6.66 percent ABV red IPA is 7.0 percent and a tribute to the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you feel about demonic possessions), Temple Brewing managed to get it right with their red IPA and used a blend of six different malts while hopping six times throughout the brewing.

Although ominous, 666 contains the layers of flavours many love about the style, with those hops providing pine, grapefruit and resinous quality that borders on the tannic. Lurking beneath is sweet toffee, caramel and a touch of bergamot that reveals the beast to be gentler than its demonic image suggests.
