Brewery: Modus Operandi in Mona Vale, NSW Style: DIPA ABV: 8.0% Rate Beer: no rating yet Pour: Light tangerine/orange colour with a small lasting head And now for the double IPA version of their Sonic Prayer. Which, on technicality, double 6% would be 12% right? But anyway this tastes just like the Sonic Prayer. The booziness […]
Brewery: Amundsen in Oslo, Norway Style: DDH DIPA (double dry hopped double IPA) ABV: 8.5% Rate Beer: 95/100 Pour: Wheat yellow in colour with a small white head. This looks and tastes like a Milkshake IPA. Fruit juice like with smooth milky creaminess. This is a beer that hides it’s ABV too well. I could easily […]
Brewery: Pōhjala in Tallinn, Estonia Style: West Coast Double IPA ABV: 8.2% Rate Beer: 90/100 Pour: Light orange/mandarin with white head. I can’t say I’ve ever had a beer from Estonia before but if this is an indication of their beer scene, sign me up and get me over to Estonia. This is a collab beer […]
Brewery: Capital Brewing Co in Canberra, ACT Style: Double IPA ABV: 8.2% Rate Beer: no rating yet Pour: Orange sherbet colour with a thin white head. Rockmelon and mandarin hits you in the face before the warming booziness follows behind with a comforting hug. Clean, surprisingly easy drinking DIPA. This screams summer nights out on my […]
My first trip to Australia’s most southern state as apart of my birthday celebration meant a chance to visit some of Hobart’s growing brewery scene. Given the trip I knew of two I had to visit and given basically a day to be driven around, quickly found a couple more to drop in on as well.
Silky smooth and quite a bit sweeter than your average Red IPA
The Great Australasian Beer SpecTapular is literally craft beer Christmas. A day dedicated to the wonderful industry that is beer and craft beer. Over 170 beers brewed specifically for the event, over 60 brewery exhibitors and that’s just a part of the festivities that goes on at GABS.
This instantly reminds me of classic IPAs like Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Ballast Point Big Eye.
