Indian Pale Ale / This beer is for the hoplovers. Cascade and Sauvin hops give a powerful spicy, citrus hit. The solid malt backbone and assertive bitterness bring the beer into balance. Be careful... dangerously drinkable. from the label

330ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber colour, large frothy off-white head and nice aroma of passionfruit & floral citrus hop. Taste is malt caramel with tropical fruits, tangy grapefruit and resiny pine bitterness. Foamy mouth feel, medium bodied, high carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable IPA.

An interesting miss in my opinion. Sauvin seems to work better with lighter, less malt-heavy styles. The relationship here between malt and hop is uneasy, like a couple of strangers stuck in a lift. They have to muddle through together but they’re not very comfortable with it. Hazy bronze with a thin head. Fruity aroma of green apples, passionfruit, tinned pears and some Sauvin gooseberry notes. Faint cat pee from the Sauvin. The first taste impression is a big mouth-filling slug of malt and then the hops clamour for attention. I like Sauvin but it’s used to better effect in lagers. Reasonable bitterness here, quite sour in the swallow. (330ml bottle from Carrington Cellars.)

Maris (1225) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 22/10/2015. Pours a clear deep golden with a medium head. Has a mild aroma of caramel with a bit of fruit on top. Take a sip and there’s a decent dash of caramel malt, some indistinct fruitiness, and a moderate hop bittereness. I can’t detect any Sauvin in there at all. Medium bodies with average carbonation. Doesn’t really present as an IPA for mine, as it’s pretty light on for hops. More a just decent, malt forward APA.
