#throwbackthursday to Sunday Sessions at @akashabrew trying out their recently released New England IPA. A great juicy beer full of Passionfruit and Mango with a subtle bitterness that is oh so tasty and drinks so well, it is hard to believe it is 6.8% ABV. I am becoming a huge fan of the NEIPA style and this is one of the better Aussie versions!!!!

@3ravensbrewery Juicy IPA ABV: 6% Pours a light amber into the glass with a great haze that immediately reminds me of a glass of breakfast juice. Aroma is vibrant and full of juicy tropical fruits like grapefruit, mango, papaya, pineapple, citrus that with the appearance tries to fool your mind that this is a glass of juice. But don’t worry from first taste you know this is a beer and good one at that. On the tongue the juiciness continues from the aroma with extra pine and grapefruit and great balanced bitterness backing it up. The mouthfeel is chewy at first but then feels almost creamy as it coats your tongue and drags you back for another taste. Juicy is the perfect name for this and hard to believe no fruit was used in the making. If you’re a fan of the NEIPA style get your hands on a can of this as it is outstanding.

@shenanigansbrewing Gone Troppo IPA ABV: 5.8% Pours a clear light amber with solid white head that hangs around nicely. Aroma matches the name being full of tropical fruits; passionfruit, paw paw, guava, citrus, pine and slight hint of malt. The added passionfruit and guava come at you hard up front but then fade to allow the citrus piny resin bitterness of the hops shine through. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation, plus that big tropical fruit hit makes this the perfect addition to hot summer evening, pity I enjoyed mine mid-winter however this did not make it any less tasty!!!!

@hopebrewhouse IPA ABV: 6% Pours an orange amber with a small sudsy head that collars the beer leaving average lacing. Aroma is a solid mix of hops and malt with, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, resin and biscuity malts. Taste doubles down on the hops with the tropical fruits staying at the front and a great pine/resin crisp bitterness and well balanced toasty malts. Mouthfeel is slick with low carbonation, great lingering bitterness that finishes crisp and dry with some fruit hanging on. Great well rounded Aussie IPA that if you see in store grab a can or stop past the Brewhouse if you're ever in the @huntervalleywc .

@thegrifterbrewingco Big Sur IPA ABV:6.7% Pours an enticing amber with a golden hue and slight haze. Smallish white head but holds a thin layer on the beer and gives great lacing. Nose full of hops with tropical fruits; passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus, pine and solid background of those toasty malts. The taste follows the nose of tropical fruits and citrus plus some resin and a solid bitterness that all balance so well. Great clean easy drinking IPA from another great Sydney brewery. Perfect addition to a Sunday arvo at @the_henson ....special mention goes to the awesome tap decal!!!!

Droped past the @the_henson for a few Saturday arvo quiet ones and finally got to try the @philterbrewing XPA. Was a crystal clear pale straw gold in the glass with a good lasting white head. Gave off a great tropical aroma of passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and citrus plus a light sweet malt. The flavour like the aroma is full of tropical fruits with passionfruit, grapefruit, mango and citrus. There is a mild bitterness right at the end and the moderate carbonation makes for a great session beer.

@prancingponysa Thoroughbred India Red Ale ABV: 7.9% Pours a murky reddish brown with a solid off white head that lasts well. Subtle nose of blood orange, caramel, toffee, marmalade, breads and light spices. The taste is sticky sweet tropical fruits, blood orange and a strong caramel malt backbone with hints of toffee. It has a slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation and full body with the hops providing a long bitter finish and the ABV comes through with a nice warming on the palette. This is a very impressive beer and a great example of the style. If you see it in your locals fridge grab a bottle.

#throwbackthursday to Sydney @gabsfestival enjoying my other number 1 favourite beer the @piratelifebeer Vanilla Malt Thickshake. Poured a slightly hazy golden straw with a great cascading head; thanks to being poured on Nitro. Big hit of passionfruit on the nose with vanilla in the background. The best way to describe this beer is smooth, creamy, malt, hoppy goodness with an amazing mouthfeel reminding me of a creamy milkshake. There is a great balance between the malt and hops to remind you that this in fact an IPA with the malty vanilla side coming through strong in the finish. This was great at GABS and still just as good when I found it on tap @quarrymanshotel Not sure you can still find it but if you see it on tap do not hesitate grab yourself a glass!!!

@modusoperandibrewing Former Tenant Red IPA ABV: 7.8% Pours a golden syrup ruby red with a good sized off white head that leaves great lasting. Pungent dank hop aroma of citrus, pine, resin, grapefruit and some caramel carried through on the malt. Has a great mouthfeel with the taste starting on the sweeter side with caramel and toffee then some peach, quickly followed by a well balanced citrus, grapefruit, pine and resin bitterness. I fell in love with this beer when I first had it and it is my go to beer from Modus. If you haven’t had one yet, do yourself a favour and track one down.

@goldenroadbrew Wolf Among Weeds IPA ABV: 8.0% Pours a hazy straw with decent head that quickly diminishes to a very thin layer across the beer leaving a quality lacing. Straight away on the nose you get tropical fruit with peach, passionfruit, pineapple then the citrus and malt come through. Taste has a mild malt base with a balance between citrus and caramel plus a good earthy dank resin hops. Has a very smooth medium body and a good bitterness, nice lingering bitter finish that makes this very drinkable. Hides the 8% very well and is another good example of a West Coast IPA.
