Bricks Don't Roll Review

Feels like it's stating the obvious this one. You'd have to REALLY hurl a brick down a hill for it to do anything you could describe as a roll. How this relates to beer is anyone's guess.

Construction elements aside, Bricks Don't Roll is a hazy, fruity IPA brewed with Citra and Idaho 7 hops to give it fruitness as well as piney grassiness to balance it out.

Being Tiny Rebel you would expect this to have a wild element, but it's actually a straightforward IPA which is a step into normality for them, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Far from it.

Bricks Don't Roll: Taste Test

Bursting with stone fruit juiciness in the aroma with just a subtle undercurrent of grassiness. The pour is a really dense gold and is super hazy, genuinely opaque.

The texture is creamy, but the carbonation gives it a little bite at first before the herbal, piney flavour which eventually gives way to the fruit flavours of mango, and melon.

The aftertaste is a citrus bittersweet flavour, with the bitterness helping to balance out the sweetness to make it a really great tasting beer.

Bricks Don't Roll: Can Notes

It has bricks on it, obviously. But not boring red of grey bricks, no these are funky pink bricks that I associate more the Pez sweets that I do construction.

The bright pink can really stands out, with the bright blue block lettering of the beer name contrasting nicely, especially with the shadow effect which is very aesthetically pleasing.

The graffiti-type name of Tiny Rebel in yellow provides further contrast, and these fonts are carried over the back of the can which has some taste and beer notes on the back to continue the theme of a graffiti'd wall.

Buy Bricks Don't Roll IPA

If you want to roll this beer into your fridge (because cans DO roll) then you can grab one from the Beer Merchants for just £3.40.

Probably not as cheap as buying a brick and seeing if it rolls for yourself, but likely to be more satisfying.
