Motueka’s Masks by Black Flag Brewing Firm
(You’ve met with a horrible destiny, haven’t you?)

Majora’s Masks

A legend held dearly by the Royal Household tells of a boy… A boy who, after battling evil and saving Hyrule, crept away from the land that made him a legend… Executed with the battles he as soon as waged throughout time, he launched into a journey.

Zelda: Majora’s Masks (N64)

And so begins Hyperlink’s story in Majora’s Masks for the N64, (launched April twenty seventh, 2000). I keep in mind getting the sport that Halloween, I used to be 14, and black Mountain Dew simply got here out. I “manned the door” on Halloween night time, handing out sweet, whereas I performed Majora’s Masks and drank most likely a complete case of Black Mountain Dew.

Oh… what a wonderful time.

Ocarina of Time for the N64 remains to be thought-about probably the greatest video games ever, however Majora’s Masks was such an incredible observe up sequel to it. It was darkish, it was gloomy, it was brooding, it felt new, distinctive, and it felt superior.

Its a Prime 5 recreation for me of all time, proper up there with Ocarina of Time, Ultimate Fantasy 3 / 6, GoldenEye 007, and so on. (I dunno if I may truthfully pinpoint a Prime 5 listing of video video games, with all of the totally different genres, and totally different eras of video games, and so on, however I might assume rotatingly Majora’s Masks, Ocarina of Time, GoldenEye 007, and Ultimate Fantasy 3 / 6; would all be in that listing at totally different factors of you asking me.)

And right here, on the discharge of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Black Flag Brewing Firm asks:

You’ve met with a horrible destiny, haven’t you?

Beer Evaluate: Motueka’s Masks

Motueka’s Masks by Black Flag Brewing Firm

Beer: Motueka’s Masks
Brewery: Black Flag Brewing Firm
Type: IPA – New England / Hazy
ABV: 7%
IBU: 35
Untappd Description: An ode to Zelda, the otherworldly hop profile of Motueka, Mosaic, and El Dorado will transport you to Termina because the subtly dank hop traits blended with mellow flaked oats and tropical haze may have even the staunchest anti-hoppers doing a double take.

Identical to the sport this beer is predicated on – Majora’s Masks – this beer (Motueka’s Masks) is a good looking wanting beer. That is about as hazy as hazy can get, however not with a ton of floating sediment, or chunks, or wanting ugly. That is on the lighter scale of coloring, however it’s positively a hazy IPA, simply extra of a lighter straw yellow coloration fairly than a darker yellow to orange coloring.

First whiff…. woo thats some hops you bought there Hyperlink! You possibly can scent the dankness, the hops, the floral notes, the sticky hops, and the wee bits of sweet stonefruit popping your nostrils between all the opposite sturdy aromas. This smells simply as an exquisite as it’s lovely. Actually doesn’t scent just like the Deku Deku bogs!

Now lets take a deep Zora dive into the beer. Mild, nearly pillowy physique. It takes a couple of moments after a sip, then a blast of stonefruit sweet taste. Very sticky and drying. Floral flavors upon warming. Total, a smooth, frivolously hazy beer with a nice bouquet of flavors all artfully organized like a Hyrulian map so that you can discover. The flavors of that is as deep as a Goron forge however as vibrant as a map drawn by Tingle. There’s a slight greenness to it but; a bit of grass style, a bitter citrus, and a bit of gentle. It’s smooth and the mouthfeel is a bit of bit gentle, would have kinda appreciated a bit extra physique from this, however there’s definitely no off flavors, nothing detracting from the beer. The 7% ABV isn’t on the excessive finish of beers (for instance – Troegs Brewing Perpetual IPA is a 7.5%) however its not precisely a crushable beer as properly, a 4 pack of this can carry you thru an excellent stable session of Tears of the Kingdom or via a play via of Majora’s Masks; however you’ll definitely be feeling it on the finish. Its a pleasant hazy, juicy IPA that may serve you properly whereas looking shrines and koroks within the huge Hyrule world of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. So seize a pint, get your Ultrahand prepared, and sort out the sport and this scrumptious beer!
