Mismatch Brewing, a team of industry experts who have joined forces in South Australia, to create exciting and delicious beers. One of their newest creations to be released is the Negroni IPA. Now, this was intriguing. Many questions popped to mind about how the drinking experience would be. Would the Negroni be overpowering? Or would it even taste like Negroni? Let’s find out.

This beer was inspired by the teams drinking adventures, their love for a Negroni turned into a new beer idea. They created the beer generously hopped with Amarillo then blended in a custom-made bitters post fermentation. For those unfamiliar to a Negroni. This is a cocktail, made from gin, vermouth and Campari, garnished with orange peel. To see this style of cocktail combined into the bitterness of an IPA is quite unique, but perhaps also set to an acquired taste.

On pour, this smells like a Negroni, bitter with hits of orange. If I had my eyes shut, I would not guess that I had a beer in my hand. Appears like an IPA in the glass, with little visibility to the other side of the drink. It has light consistency, bitter upfront. But then you get a massive hit of Negroni. You can’t escape it. It has a rich malt backing to balance out the bitterness, with a layer of orange, highlighting a classic Negroni.

This is one of those beers, that it comes down to the individual. If you are not a fan of this cocktail, then perhaps this inspired beer will not be for you. However, if you do like that style of beverage then it is worth giving it a try. Overall, the beer certainly hits the brief. A Negroni styled beer, tick. This to me personally, is a nice beer to try, it is creative and unique to other beers I have tried. However, I also see this as an occasional beer, rather than something you would sit and have a four pack of.
