Tasted 29 July 2009. 330ml bottle, 7.0% Alc/Vol
It’s been a while since I tried this beer and now I’m wondering why. This is arguably their best beer and in my opinion the best example of its style in Australia.
Dark amber colour. Big whopping piney hop aromas and caramel malt that gets the mouth watering. The palate is evenly flavoured and full, soft and smooth. Big malt and hops character again. Subtle citrus and roasted nuttiness appear along with hoppy spice. The bitterness is well distributed and very intense. A soft creamy malty character helps sooth the beasty hops that linger pleasantly well afterwards. An excellent double IPA.
