I thought I would be too slow to get my hands on this beer as it was already a few months since it was brewed when I finally found it. I wasn’t sure how big of a batch they had brewed so I thought there might have been a possibility I would never have gotten the chance to try it. I did manage to find it and at the same time, I got the chance to try out Fat Cow’s Bang Wa branch, the new branch of the legendary Bangkok craft beer place. Don’t forget to check our article of Fat Cow Lad Phrao as well.
This is the collaboration beer the blog Cambodian Craft Beers wrote about in the interview with Eleventh Fort. Eleventh Fort is a popular Thai craft beer brewer and Behemoth Brewing Company is from New Zealand.
The Fort Gypsy Moth is an IPA with an ABV of 6%. It pours clear golden. The aroma is passionfruit, pineapple and tangerine. It has low carbonation and the flavour is not intensely bitter but there is some bitterness to it. The flavour is of a random fruit cocktail with some pine. Not very highly carbonated, could use some more. Still, a pretty refreshing beer and I did definitely enjoy it. Get it while it lasts!
