I was under the impression, when I first heard about Bimini Twist, that it was some sort of Caribbean drink. Big, with lots of fruit, lots of rum, and possibly a little paper umbrella.
And, as is my life from time to time, I was wrong. It’s a knot. A very complicated, very strong, very inaccessible to my clumsy hands knot.
The IPA version of Bimini Twist (India Pale Ale, 6.4% ABV) is just as complicated and just as strong.
What makes Bimini Twist to interestingly complex to me is a lack, of what I could taste, of big fruit flavors. Instead, there a richness in the hoppy flavors. It’s complex, it deep, and it’s incredibly impressive. Very mature, almost an aged quality. (There’s an idea, 3 Daughters. Aging in, maybe Oak? Cherry?)
Even the color of the beer has a deep apricot hue, darker than traditionally straw yellow-ish IPA colors. I think IPA fans are really going to enjoy this, to be honest.
More than I would in trying to tie one of those knots…
